Local Knowledge

Could you help us discover if there are more sailors in Las Vegas than populate the typical six to eight boats we get out on Lake Mead for club races?

The Nevada Yacht Club is a pretty small club, seeing those 6-8 boats out for weekend racing and a few less for the 75 mile distance race they run once a year. But it seems that with a population over 2 million people around Vegas, we should see more interest than we do. We’re thinking that sailors move to Vegas, but unaware there is racing on Lake Mead figure they’ll just take a break or travel to continue sailing.

We’re hoping many of these sailors continue to read Anarchy after they moved away from the coast (as I have done) and we would like to be able to reach out to them. Drop me a note if this is true for you! – Anarchist Chris.
