In fact, conditions are so ideal that the radio controlled IOM (international one meter) class sailboat championships are often held right here. In the past such events have attracted more than 50 contestants from around the United States. The LOA, maximum “Length Over All” of the hull, of these little yachts is 1 meter (39.37 inches) and their mast height is 1.6 meters (63 inches).
Here are some future events:
