Carter Lake

Carter Lake Sailing Club Open Regatta is an annual event when the Club invites other racers from other lakes, as well as the Carter Lake Marina and any one from the public to race sailboats. The sailboats competing can be large or small keel boats or dinghy's, with crew at all levels of experience, but racers must be in a sailing vessel. This is a two day event with racing both days, a potluck on Saturday night and award ceremony following the last race on Sunday afternoon. We expect 10-20 sailboats on the lake that weekend but do not anticipate any need for additional rangers to be on hand. The Club will cover start boat, finish boat and a mark boat that can also act as a rescue boat if needed.

Comments: Hello, I looked at the website for information on the event, but no further information was available. Please provide a rough schematic of the location of the event on the lake. Will the Park Rangers be readily available to provide assistance in an emergency, to include access to 911 request for dive rescue? May be possible to ask the Larimer County Dive Rescue Team (all volunteers) to provide support for the event as an onsite standby resource. Berthoud Fire responds to the southern 1/3 of the lake and may have a need to review the information, Fire Chief Steve Charles would be the contact. Feel free to call me at 970-962-2488 if you have questions or need assistance, Ned Sparks.

I spoke with Jeff Postek about the event. The course map has been added, but may be altered the day of the event dependent on weather. Park Rangers will be the main contact for an emergency.
