Folsom Lake ‘Lectronic

Reader Mark Werder sent us the first in a series (or dare we say essay) of photos back in April:

The April issue of Latitude, on the left — and used here as a type of water-level gauge — shows a full-ish Folsom Lake, with the January issue, on the right, for comparison.

"Folsom Lake is filling fast" Werder wrote us via Facebook. "Should be a great Camellia Cup. Our boat is 2-Step, Santana 20 #923." This April saw the 52nd running of the Camellia Cup with 45 boats in seven divisions. Werder and 2-Step took third in the seven-boat Santana 20 fleet. He’s been keeping an eye on the Latitude (by which we mean level) of the lake. Framing things with the June issue, Werder reported that:

"Folsom is full; bring on summer!"

For more information about sailing on Folsom Lake, we’ll refer you to the Folsom Lake Yacht Club. We’re also going to be talking about another lake (not far from Folsom) in an upcoming issue of Latitude. Spoiler alert: It’s Tahoe.

Having a ‘Bud’ on Friday is a common American ritual, but this Bud was poised to pack a different punch.
