Took a 2 hr lesson with Tom on Lake Dillon and it was superb. Low wind the first 90 min and then it picked up and we were running almost 9 knots for a while. We plan to come back!

We had a 22' Santana sailboat for the day. Dillon Reservoir is gorgeous, but the wind can be fickle - as in very little when we took it out in the afternoon. Still enjoyed motoring around. I have rented several times with Windrider, and always...More
