News

Stony Creek has demolished the old, boat storage area and is in process of repurposing "prime, lake-front" area.

Rental boat storage has been moved across the road; rates doubled to $600 for the 2016 summer season.

Hearsay: in the existing launch area they will be updating docks, and adding a soft ramp for launching.

Creekers are interested in the "big plan," since we are regular users of the storage, ramps, and lake, but little information has been publicized. We shall see!

Events: Full Season of Fun!

STONY CREEK SAILING

Thursday evenings, 6:30 PM, May 19-Sept 1

Sunday afternoons, 2:00 PM, Sept 11-Oct 30

Join us any (and every!) Thursday night in the summer, and Sunday afternoons in the fall. Practice sailing (no race buoys set) in May; race season begins June 2. Arrive early, rig, and be on the water prior to stated start time.

Late arrivals welcome: sail by the committee on the grassy point; we will record your boat so you can participate in second (and any additional) race that day. We want you!

Our email list is the best way to stay informed of any changes, additional opportunities, regattas, outings, and activities.
