On September 9th 2016 I sailed with two of my sailing students taking the Keelboat class on Hayden Lake. It was a beautiful day of sailing! Light winds of 3-7 knots. If you want to learn to sail a small boat such as a Hobie Cat or Lasar, etc. or Keelboat take my US Sailing/Safe Boating Course... learn more by visiting the Lesson tab above.
Attention access to outdoor enthusiasts! This July 30th starting at 8:AM we are doing an access project in Boundary County at Smith Lake to restore access to this lake, primarily by adding dirt/gravel back to ramps and a path. We sure could use more volunteers to get this project done efficiently. If you would like to join us contact me (Miles Moore) via text at 208-704-4454 or email email@example.com for more details, etc. For directions and lake info visit this link... http://bit.ly/1mo0MWA
