ABOUT THE LAKE

Cruising World - - Forgotten Fiji -

The Lake Ta­hoe sail­ing sea­son runs from about Memo­rial Day to the end of Septem­ber, but there might still be snow on the moun­tain­sides into June.

Al­though the lake has only one true bay, there are sev­eral cres­cent-shaped open road­steads on both sides that are suit­able for an­chor­ing. Ex­am­ples are Meeks Bay on the west shore and Sand Har­bor on the east. Both of these coves have swim buoys that not only pro­tect swim­mers, but also act as safe-depth mark­ers for sail­boats.

The Fresh Ketch restau­rant at the Ta­hoe Keys Ma­rina is rec­om­mended and an easy stroll from most of the docks.

If you go ashore, don’t leave food in your beached dinghy be­cause Ta­hoe bears are quite in­ter­ested in such easy pick­ings. In fact, it is not a good idea to stroll a beach at night eat­ing, say, an ap­ple. At least one vis­i­tor has had his snack rudely con­fis­cated by same.
