Summer? Naaah. Not unless you catch some risky, gusty thunderstorm winds. 112
degrees just isn't conducive to winds. MAYBE if you're talking 5-knot-longboard
cruising you might get lucky. Bag the sailing and hit Utah's world-class
national parks.

Another place to check out is Piute res by Richfield / Circleville.
Reasonably close to St. Goerge. Its been several years since I sailed
there, but EVERY time I stopped there in May, I used a sail in the low
5's. The mountains seem to focus south winds near the dam. Id bet they
still get some wind in the summer.

You probably wont see another sailor and definately cant rent there.
