Overview

Canandaigua Lake is an excellent place to learn and progress in the sport of windsurfing.  The shallow waters at the car top boat launch to the east of the Kershaw swim beach allow for arranging everything after a wipe out, while easily standing on the bottom. Be aware of families and other pedestrians on shore.

Kite launching is prohibited in this part of Canandaigua. 

Kershaw Park offers its best sailing in a wind blowing from the Southeast to Southwest.  Canandaigua Lake also offers a launch for riding West (Kershaw) wind and North/North West (Da Rocks) wind.

More detailed information on each launch is available by using the menu bar above.
