THE FIRST ANNUAL LAKE PUEBLO TRAILER SAILOR RALLY

Trailer Sailor Rally event details
The Lake Pueblo Sailing Club is in the process of planning a trailer sailor rally in early October 2023. Our 8 mile long lake is located near Pueblo Colorado on the Arkansas River at 4800’ in elevation. Historically September and October provide the best wind and weather conditions at Lake Pueblo. We envision this being similar to the Lake Havasu gatherings of the past. The 6 day event will include some low key around the buoys racing, a boat parade and show, overnight anchor and raft up, seminars, gear swap, and more.
