It’s June and it’s definitely time to get out on Lake Norman! Whether you enjoy sailing, power boating, water sports of all kinds including water skiing, wake boarding, wind surfing, kayaking, rowing, paddle boarding, tubing, swimming, fishing or just plain handing out on the water or on one of the myriad islands with your friends Lake Norman is the place to have fun in the summer!
As you can see from the photo above, Lake Norman is a huge lake that can accommodate large sail and power boats of all kinds. There are two yacht clubs, the Lake Norman Yacht Club in Mooreville down Brawley School Rd adjacent to the Trump International Golf Club and The Peninsula Yacht Club located in the luxury community The Peninsula in Cornelius. There is also a non-profit: North Carolina Sailing and Rowing center at Blythe landing that offers lessons and sailing and rowing programs to the public at minimal costs.
This gorgeous photo was taken by renowned artist Cotton Ketchie, owner of Mooresville’s Landmark Galleries, who spends much of his time driving all over North Carolina and even summer trips around the country, taking stunning photos. And, of course, he also takes some amazing photos of Lake Norman like this one. If you haven’t visited his store on Main Street in Historic Downtown Mooresville you should put it on your list for 2013!
