Notes: This is the big event of the year for Fleet 1. Unfortunately for 2022, we were not able to reserve our old group campsite.

Whiskeytown Lake is a beautiful lake surrounded by trees and mountains. After launching our boats we can tie them up at the shore near our campsite to make it easy to sail to the races or pleasure sail. The weather varies year-by-year and it can sometimes rain.

The city of Redding is about a 20 minute drive away, so some Fleet 1 members prefer to stay at a hotel in Redding.
