Okanagan Lake (completed in 2003)
This gaff-rigged racing ketch was owned by T.W. Stirling and photographed circa
1905. The gaff is a spar that extends the uppermost edge of the four cornered
mainsail. It was the only 2 masted sailboat on Okanagan Lake until modern times.
Sailing on Okanagan Lake is still a popular past-time. At the Vernon yacht club,
about 30 sailboats participate in weekly competitions. Okanagan Lake is also the
home of the mysterious Ogopogo Lake Monster
