ATTENTION SAILORS: QUAGGA & ZEBRA MUSSELS
Whiskeytown Lake uses a “self certification package” for sailors to verify that their vessels have not been in waters where Quagga or Zebra mussels are present, or if they have been in such waters, the boats have been thoroughly dried out and cleaned before coming to Whiskeytown. Please print out the Self-Certification Package (or visit http://www.nps.gov/whis). It is a three page packet. Page 1 provides information about Quagga and Zebra mussels. Page 2 is a questionnaire regarding your boat, and page 3 is a form which you as skipper need to sign, and display on the dashboard of your tow vehicle when it is parked at the Brandy Creek Marina parking area. The form certifies that your boat will not threaten Whiskeytown Lake with Quagga or Zebra mussels.
Also, please be advised that vehicles need to display a valid parking permit, which can be purchased at the Whiskeytown Lake Visitor Center for $5.00 per day.
The Regatta is open to dinghies, centerboards, keel boats and multi hulls. Check back here often for more details, or email WhiskeytownSailing [at] gmail.com.
