Sailing On Huntington Lake

California - over five thousand miles from lake Hinuma, Japan. Nice videos of the 2009 High Sierra Regatta. Posted by MadMax4790. First is the start of race 1 with As & Bs starting together.



Huntington is just 5.83 square kilometers in size (compared to Hinuma's 9.35 sq.km.) and sits at an elevation of 2130 meters (7000 feet). Pretty place for a race. Nice turnout.

Next is the finish of race 2...



7,000 feet? Man, slip me some oxygen.

Until next, sweet sailing.

Gotta get me a Lido 14. Light, responsive, quick. Lovely. Dear Santa......

Baydog - yes, indeed. Maybe not the fastest on the pond but a great family boat and a lot of fun. We even caught a fish with Bluesette today.

I remember crewing on a C-15 on this lake. Beautiful. Good winds. Wet ride. Cold water. That's what I remember.

Doc - that's neat that you've been there. Looks really nice. Must be quite a drive to trailer a boat to though.
