Finn Highlanders

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sail a Finn while climbing a mountain? Well, I’m sure someone has; but now that I mention it you want to try it, don’t you? We have a place for you. Sailing Lake Dillon at 9200 feet of elevation is beautiful. There is a consistent wind that fills in over the dam and the views of the Breckenridge ski area, Keystone resort, and the Continental Divide make for an amazing sail. We hold the Rocky Mountain Championship every year in late August when the water is warming up. You can brag that you have sailed the highest Finn regatta in the world, and not just because it is legal in Colorado. We have camping areas and hotels close to Dillon Yacht Club with plenty of family activities to keep everyone busy while you are on the water. It is a fantastic destination regatta for all. They even sell bottles of oxygen for you, sea level guys, that are spoiled by all that extra air you keep down there. Where else can you sail in the summer while looking at snow-covered peaks?

We also sail every Wednesday night and Sunday afternoon just north of Denver. We have 8 Finns sitting at Union Sailing Club. We have a loaner Finn for anyone that is in the area and would like to join us. Please “like” our FB page: Finn Rocky Mountain. We have a couple of guys that travel to several national Finn regattas and train as often as we can, so there is some good competition and some challenging conditions. If you will be in the Denver metro area and would like to sail with us, please let us know at
