History:  2010 was the inaugural year for this windsurfing regatta and gathering.   The reservoir is a 220 acre inland lake with an  intimate campground on the water which  makes for a fun weekend.   The campground also offers six primitive cabins with AC for those who don’t want to tent camp. This site is an especially great spot for entry level windsurfers to test their skills.   Even if you don’t plan to race come on out, rig a sail and hang out on the water for the afternoon!  The Friday pre-vent practice day has seen great winds!

 Above is an aerial view of the site.  You can see the campground on the upper right and windsurf point that juts out into the water giving you  good wind to launch in.  A group tent area is also available on the point by the water.  🙂
