Hi, new guy here; Has anyone here ever sailed on Lake Buchanan? It seems like a pretty good size lake, I am thinking about taking my SJ21 out there. Can someone tell me a little about the waters and hows the wind? Can I spend an over night on the lake?

I've sailed Buchanan. Good wind as it's 5 miles across, you might not want to be on it when the winds are high as it can get pretty rough. Nice though, lot's of room.
It's fun to sail up the Colorado when the water level is up, I've made it to Bend State park a few times, but I want the water level to be 1015 which it isn't today. The eagles will be there to raise their babies this winter.
At the present 990 I'd go find a good boat ramp that's still in the water first.
