The view of Smith Mountain Lake isn’t complete without the serene scene of white sails on the horizon. Almost year-round, sailing enthusiasts enjoy their favorite type of on-the-water cruise on our beautiful lake. Some are out for the relaxation, but many are into the thrill of competition. Local newspaper Laker Weekly recently highlighted a different kind of competitive sailing approach – a midnight sail under the moonlight.
The nighttime competition was the third annual event of its kind, sponsored by SML’s two sailing clubs, the Blackwater Yacht Racing Association and Virginia Inland Sailing Association. After a little friendly competition, the hobbyists regrouped for a late night party.
Smith Mountain Lake is the perfect place for the sailing enthusiast. For more information on our lovely lake and community, contact the expert, Deb Beran.
