We sail at Lake Crabtree County Park near RDU airport just off of I-40.  Once in Lake Crabtree Park continue straight until the road forks.

 

The road curves toward the lake, you’ll come to a stop sign and see the boat ramp on your right. Continue straight, the road turns to dirt and this is where we sail. 

 

If the wind is not looking favorable for that spot we may be sailing at the Observation Tower docks which has its own parking turnout just before entering the boat launch parking area.

 

Check our calendar and email list announcements for changes.
