Annual Lake Pepin Messabout

The Lake Pepin Messabout is a regional gathering all those who build or love home-built boats.  That includes canoes, kayaks, sailboats and powerboats.  Admission is free.

This year's messabout is from May 30 through June 1.

Just like last year, the messabout will be at beautiful Lake Pepin, on the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

The high cliffs and woodlands surrounding the lake create a beautiful boating site.  The lake is huge, and absorbs lots of boats, so there's no crowding.  The sailing can be adventurous, and you'll see some wonderful boats cruising the area.  Don't worry about the current.  It's a non-factor since the lake is so big.

What is a messabout?

messabout is an event where a group of people get together to discuss and "mess about" in boats.
