Terrific write-up!   Thanks!

 

It  just like reading the book of that heroic Everest adventure ("Into the thin air").  

 

The story line has all the ingredient of an INDIE documentary film !

Last I heard Spruce Run was closed to swimming due to an E. Coli problem (too much Canada geese shit).  When did they reopen it?  And how did they solve the E. Coli problem?


Just about a couple of weeks they closed the swimming beach area. Sailing was never stopped.

... For warm weather sailing, the closest to you are Lake Nockamixon PA and Round Valley Reservoir NJ.

 

Close to Round Valley Reservoir, there is an active sailing club in Spruce Run State Park, Hunterdon Sailing Club (http://sailhsc.org/).

There are pretty active fleets there: Sunfish, Force 5 and Flying Scot.

A very interesting aspect of RC Laser is that, it has a bigger sail which can be sailed in an indoor swimming pool.  The setup is to place some fans at one end of pool.  (does it work like a wind tunnel? )

 

As a matter of fact, they even claimed one such even as "world in-door sailing championship" :rolleyes:

 

here is a youtube video recorded by a bow mounted mini camera.
