Sunday, I took a stab at going sailing with my wife and four-year-old on my 16' Wa'apa outrigger canoe. We put in at the boat ramp close to Moonshine Beach on Table Rock Lake, sailed around for a bit, then played in the water along the sandy beach area. It was way more work than fun, but it's good to know my daughter isn't afraid of the water even in a small sailing craft. If and when I bump up to a family friendly sailboat this summer or next spring, I'll know she's fully game for going out again. I just have to squeeze in some fishing, as well. She was a little disappointed that we didn't have time for it, like we did Saturday afternoon.
The open area down by the dam is a decent place to sail. If you get rid of the jet skis, it'd be even better. Aside from us, we saw one large-ish monohull sailboat and a very fast trimaran. We also saw the Branson Bell paddle wheeler and had a great dinner at The Farmhouse Restaurant in the old downtown Branson area, on the way home.
