One of America's most inspiring Championship venues with the afternoon thermal breeze piping up against the Columbia River's current. The Gorge creates a wind-tunnel between the beautiful mountains that rise from the waters edge to nearly one mile vertically high in places. In summer westerlies are the prevailing wind direction due to the hot air rising in the desert out east sucking relatively cool marine air in through the gorge. The wind will blow the hardest from about 10:00hrs. until 19:00hrs.
The current at Cascade Locks generally runs at 1 to 2 knots. The deepest channel on the river is where the most extreme conditions can occur. For a relatively easier going sailors can move to the edge of the channel/river with depths varying from 20 feet to more than 170 feet in places.
