The Coots' Coast Messabout will be held on Tahkenitch Lake, between Florence and Reedsport. We'll camp at Tahkenitch Landing Campground, which has a gravel boat ramp and a dock to tie up boats overnight. If you need it there's a paved launch ramp a little bit north of the campground.

Tahkenitch Lake has many narrow arms to explore, if you can get under the railroad bridges, but there's still plenty of lake for a sailboat to enjoy even if it's not convenient to drop its mast. On Friday and Saturday we'll probably go into a nearby city for a restaurant dinner.
