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.
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.
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.
