There are several great sailing opportunities at Lake Macbride, a beautiful man made lake near Solon, for those who live in the region around Iowa City. If you're interested in racing, The Lake Macbride Sailing Club races MC Scows (see: Lake Macbride Sailing Club - Welcome). For beginners and students, the Iowa Sailing Club might be a better choice (Iowa Sailing Club). For those who have their own boat and just want a place to sail, there's great inexpensive sailboat accommodations and free lake access at Lake Macbride's north arm administered by the Department of Natural Resources.

YES! You can sail on Lake Macbride. There is a secure boat parking area with lockers available on the north arm of the lake. The U of I sailing club has a facility on the south side arm of the lake and the Lake Macbride Sailing Club (not affiliated with the U of I club) sails the north arm.
