Welcome to the website of Catalina 22 Fleet 4.
We are a recreational sailing organization based in Sacramento, CA, chartered on June 14, 1972, and organized to promote:
●Family Cruising  ●Catalina 22 One Design Racing
 ●Seamanship, boating safety, and small craft handling skills  ●Overall Sailing Enjoyment
Our bi-monthly Membership meetings are held at various locations in the Sacramento area. Our "home port" for sailing activities is Brown's Ravine Marina at Folsom Lake State Park, but we also schedule "away" cruises in San Francisco Bay, the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta, Monterey, and other, more distant locations like the San Juan and Gulf Islands.

AS OF FEBRUARY 9th, ALL FOLSOM LAKE MARINA SLIPS, THE FUEL DOCK, AND THE MAIN LAUNCH RAMP ARE ALL CLOSED. THE LAUNCH RAMP AT HOBIE COVE IS OPEN, WITH THE LAKE LEVEL AT 437'. NO SPEED LIMIT ON LAKE. A SERIES OF HEAVY WINTER STORMS IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY, WITH SUBSEQUENT WATER RELEASES BY BUREC, HAS CAUSED THE LAKE LEVEL TO FLUCTUATE UP AND DOWN BETWEEN 405 AND 435 FEET AT LEAST TWICE OVER A PERIOD OF A FEW DAYS. BOATERS ARE ADVISED TO USE EXTREME CAUTION IN NAVIGATING THE LAKE UNDER THESE CONDITIONS, AND AVOID ANCHORING CLOSE TO SHORELINES, AS WATER LEVELS CAN DROP 2 OR 3 FEET PER HOUR WHEN RELEASE FLOWS ARE HIGH, POSSIBLY STRANDING YOUR BOAT HARD AGROUND.
