Sailing on Lake Mead, Boulder City, Nevada

By
Real Estate Agent with Lake Mead Area Realty

Two sailboats cruise the blue waters of Lake Mead on the second day of the "Learn to Sail" class. 

Boulder City, Nevada is located about 10 minutes from The Lake Mead National Recreation Area were sailing is very popular. One of my passions is sailing. Lake Mead in Boulder City, Nevada has about 250 miles of shore line. It is over 1200 feet deep in some places. It is also a great place to let the wind hit your face as you cruise along trying to keep up with the changing wind direction. As a beginner you are not alone.

Every Wednesday night sailors have an event called, "Wet Wednesdays". Sailboats and crews leave the dock around 6PM and return about 9:30PM. You don't have to be experienced to take part in the fun on Lake Mead in Boulder City, Nevada

Captains almost always could use more crew members. If you are new and don't know much about sailing, you can always just sit back, relax and watch. There is nothing quite like gliding effortlessly over the waters under a full moon like a hawk using the currents of air to propel itself above the earth below. All you hear is the sound of the wind as it fills the sails and the sound of the bow as it slides along the water.

The Nevada Yacht Club and The Lake Mead Sailing Club are two of the clubs located on Lake Mead in Boulder City, Nevada. The Nevada Yacht Club hosts sailboat races on certain weekends. The Lake Mead Sailing Club sponsors cruises throughout the year. One of the special cruises is called The Moonlight Cruise. There is also a lcourse given if you are sailing for the first time. The course is given at Lake Mead near Boulder City, Nevada  at various times during the year. It was after taking this two day course that I started sailing again. The course costs about $30.00 and includes a workbook. On the second day you actually go sailing with other students and captains as crew members.

Boulder City, Nevada does have a lot to offer its residents in terms of nautical adventures. It is one of the reasons why I call Boulder City home.

Hi Steve,

How beautiful. Not sure why I had no idea you had so many sail boats on Lake Mead. We went there years ago and for some reason I don't remember them???

That's a terrific picture Steve.  Lake Mead is very beautiful.  I'm also a big fan of Lake Powell myself.

Very cool idea for us to escape from the valley!  Thanks for sharing this.  FYI, I have no BC connections so maybe you can get a referral from me some day!  I don't go outside of the mountains ;)

Look forward to a referral from you. Don't blame you for wanting to stay in the mountains. It is beautiful there and cool! Lake Mead does get hot in the summer.

Hi Steve - your photo is so beautiful - it does not even look real.  I had no idea of places like you've written in Nevada.  Thanks for the share and thanks for your comment to my post!

I had often wondered how such a lake could be man made. It's huge! When I lived in Dallas, all the lakes in the area are also man-made. And it's mind boggling when you see that these lakes are miles long and miles wide! Such enterprise and ingenuity.
