LAKE DILLON UPDATE:
Colorado mountain sailing season is almost here!
Water is entering Lake Dillon faster than it is going out ... good news. The lake level has risen about 5' in the past two weeks, but remains 32' low. As much ice as 'clear water' can be seen when viewing the Dillon Marina's web-cam feed of the 'marina's' section of the lake.
Current forecast for the water level is the lake will not completely fill this year. If May and June are 'dry' at best the lake will reach 'high water' 20 feet below full pool.
The marina is still undergoing parking lot construction. Limited opening for weekends is scheduled beginning Saturday, 25 May '13. With this news Dave will begin to formal planning for the date AIR BORN will be brought to the lake and put into her slip and made available for demonstration sailing. Once 'the plan' comes together details will be posted here and in the Sage Marine FORUM.

2 May 2013:
Sage 17, AIR BORN, will be going onto Lake Dillon (near Vail Pass) once the lake unfreezes and the docks are put back in place the middle-ish of May 2013. The month of April was chilly and there was a lot of snow. No new news yet on an 'official' opening date. Right now, best case, AIR BORN will go onto the lake the week of 20 May. Until then AIR BORN will be at the Sage Marine shop in Golden, CO.
