It’s Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means! Yep, the annual Turnback Canyon Regatta; a two day sailboat race up the river from the Austin Yacht Club to Lago Vista and back. We didn’t race, but our friends Kurt, Kevin and Gordon did, so we cruised up and anchored overnight with them. There is a festival on-shore with live music and food, and it’s just a fun weekend overall. Marty & Sue and Lori & Mike joined us, which made it all the more fun. Memorial Day weekend is when we all say it is time to get in the water. Lake temps were about 74 degrees, so we all jumped in. It only gets warmer from here on out. Good times await.
It was a tad humid and hazy, but any day on the water is a good day.
The view anchored off of Bar K Park for the night. We tried to count all the masts, but never we ended up with the same number twice. Consensus was anywhere from 40-45 sailboats.
From the Sunday sail home. I count 32-ish sails in this one shot.
