Kelowna, BC

Kelowna is a resort town in eastern British Columbia which sits midway on the eastern banks of the very long, north-south Lake Okanagan.  The summers are incredible here, and attract many a sailor and non-sailor to the town and its shores.kelowna 1

The Central Okanagan Sailing Assn. (COSA) is a strong and vibrant sailing community that hosts many multihull events throughout the year.  With fantastic facilities, it makes a return trip almost mandatory!  Boat set-up and launching, and after-sailing breakdown and clean-up are all easily accomplished at COSA’s very comfortable venue.  Camping and RV camping are done at several nearby sites.kelowna 2

Lake Okanagan runs along the Okanagan Valley, so you are only going to get two wind directions — north or south.  The good breeze usually comes up the valley from the south.  But just because a northerly has filled in doesn’t mean you can’t double trap!  As with any lake, winds can also sometimes be fickle, and require patience.kelowna 3
