water level seems to be staying just below and just above 446' for the past couple of days.

report is that at the end of the Lake Havasu Marina & Windsor (park) ramps ... end is where the wheels fall off the concrete into a hole because power boaters don't know how to load a boat onto a trailer ... there is 38" of water.

Gail and I are planning to go to Havasu the week of the 10th of FEB. Gail is having her big "Six O" and we've been enjoying Havasu for a few years now during her birthday. We're also planning a Sage dinner like last year, so if any other Sage people are going, please let us know. Jerrry is planning on coming with his S17, Goshawk. Gail and I will be sailing her S17, Air Born. Dave will be bringing a new boat to the Miami boat show and will not be at Havasu this year. We're looking forward to a fun relaxing time.

The London Bridge Resort is keeping their great rates for anyone going during that week.

come on down to Lake Havasu! the water is fine -

The attachment AIR BORN floating at Havasu.jpg is no longer available

(click on image for a larger version)

the picture above is of AIR BORN launching at the Lake Havasu Marina 20 Jan '14 at 230pm. water level recorded at Parker Dam at the time of launch was 145.83'.

in the picture AIR BORN is 100% floated off the trailer. this is deeper than i would put the the trailer for retrieval by about six inches of depth. just over one foot of launch ramp is after of the trailer wheels.

while we were 'testing the waters' at Lake Havasu Marina a Seaward 25 launched at 'site six'. A Seaward 25 has a draft of 25" on a much taller multi-axle trailer.

there is also Lake Havasu Windsor Beach Park.

both Windsor and Site Six have steeper/deeper ramps.

Gail and I are sailing Air Born (Sage 17 #1) at Lake Havasu. Launched at the Havasu Marina Sunday. No problems. Weather has been perfect. 72-82, winds 7-15. A great vacay away from the zero degrees we've been having in Denver. Not many boats here at this time. Supposed to be like this all week.

We miss you here Bernard.

Day 2 was great sailing all day. Gentle breezes. Day 3 was a ghoster. Hardly a breeze. We were surprised that we could make the Sage move at all. One of those days when we were floating pistachio shells to see if we were moving.

Cheese and wine with fellow sailors at sunset at the dock ended a lovely day.

Starting to wind down a week of sailing in Havasu. The wind for the last 4 days was light to zero, but we did manage to get out each day. Fortunately the Sage moves well in light airs so we were able to hone our light air sailing skills and go somewhere each day, though not as far.

Cheese and wine on the dock at sunset with friends is a nice way to spend time.

It has been a great vacation. Havasu is a lovely town for snow birds in February. We've spent the past 5 years celebrating Gail's Bday and Valentine's day here in Havasu and plan to return next year as well.
