Labor Day Weekend Events 2019

Ahoy WLSC Sailors!

The following events are planned for Labor Day weekend as follows:

Saturday August 31:

  • Laser racing, Skipper’s meeting at 1:00pm on the docks.  Member’s children who have been to a WLSC Youth Sailing Camp are invited to participate, as are interested adult members.  Start of the races at 2:00pm, off-shore from the Captains Table restaurant.
  • Dennis Anthony will be cooking his famous and delicious Salmon Dinner with baked potatoes, salads, desserts, and refreshments at ~5:30pm.  Cost is $5/person. Please RSVP to me by 8 PM Weds August 28 latest on how many in your party will attend the salmon dinner on Saturday evening August 31.

Sunday Sept 1:

  • Picnic on the Dam and Overnight Raft Up, organized by Bill Murdoch, as follows: 
  • Buoy line to be set-up by 1-2pm Sunday afternoon near the shoreline at west side of dam.
  • Anytime after that come over, raft up, and chill out.  We need a few dinghies so let me know If you can bring a dinghy or small motor boat.
  • At 5:30pm we will use the dinghies to shuttle over to a spot on the shore near the Appalachian Trail.  From there we’ll walk the quarter mile trail to the top of the dam.  You’ll need to bring a picnic blanket and something to eat and drink (no alcoholic beverages allowed on the dam since it is TVA property).  There is no shade on the dam, so you will need sunscreen and a hat.  The views from the top of the dam are great.  On one side you can see the river disappear into the power tunnel only to emerge from the two turbines at the power house on the headwaters of Wilbur Lake.  On the other side you have Watauga Lake spread out before you.  Bill will provide some interesting facts about the dam construction, etc to spur your interest.
  • We will keep the buoy line up for an Overnight Raft Up for those who choose to stay. Pack something for breakfast and spend the night with us.  It’s a place few people get to see.

So come out to the lake and join us on Labor Day weekend for 1, 2, 3, or all 4 of these events!

Sail On My Friends!
