Up Lake Dock Status

Up Lake Dock situation as of April 22, 2016

Mitchell Creek – The outer two sections of dock have been removed for repair. Other sections will be accessible as the water comes up.

Corral Creek – The entire dock has been removed for repair. USFS plans to have the dock back in place by July 4.

Prince Creek – The dock will be closed from May through mid June for the construction of a new dock.

Refrigerator Harbor and Lucerne – The docks are closed for the 2016 season due to potential flash floods following the Wolverine Fire.

Always check for the latest dock status and weather conditions before heading up lake.

Site Migration

Migration is complete! Constant site outages should be a thing of the past and speed will be improved!

Work party this Sunday April 24 at 9:00

We will be getting the boats and the boat shed ready for the season this coming Sunday. There is plenty to get done so we need all hands on deck.

Sanding, washing, varnishing, paint prep, boat house cleanup and more.

After the work we will have our annual meeting and a potluck at the Nut Farm about 3:00. We will provide burgers you bring a side and your favorite beverage.

Sailing classes coming

The beginning classes are full at this time additional requests will be waitlisted. We have a couple of spots left in the advanced class.

The classes are free but membership is required for boat use outside of class times. Level 1 sailing is for new sailors and will use our fleet of 14′ Hunter 140s. Level 2 is for sailors with some experience and will focus on preparing you for cruising in our larger boats.

The specific dates for classes have not been set yet as instructors need to plan around work and harvest schedules. We usually start things up in May but lake levels play in to the plan as well.

e-mail mail@sailchelan.com for a class reservation.

We have a chase boat now we need to pay for it

We have arranged the purchase of a Boston Whaler 17′ Montauk to serve as our chase/safety boat. Now we need to raise the funds to pay for it. Our cost with tax etc. is $2,800 which is an outstanding deal!

Having a chase boat is a key requirement for our ability to teach sailing classes and conduct races and other events.
