What is CLR?
Carlyle Lake Rendezvous.
It's only the greatest get together of Compac sailing craft in history! (mainly due to the attendees)
Compac sailors from all corners of the globe assemble in West Marina at the south end of Carlyle Lake in southern Illinois.
For 5 days we rule the lake, sailing rings around all the other lesser "boats", entertaining fishermen with the "Race", and swimming in secluded coves drinking libations.
In the evening, we gather at the docks, praising each others sailing abilities and telling stories of epic journeys.
One evening the fleet will dine at Brez's Restaurant, while other patrons sit in envy as we are clearly the life of the party.
There is also a theme based dinner at the marina where trophies are presented and costumes judged.
It's THE event of the year for all Compac sailors!
Now, if it sounds too good to be true, you'll just have to attend and judge for yourself.
