Exciting New Marina at Sardis Reservoir 55 minutes south of Memphis
Sardis Marina is a reality at last ! Located only 55 minutes south of Memphis, this is a brand new marina on the south side of Sardis Lake adjacent to Engineers Point and next to the Sardis Dam. It offers another Sailing Port for Mid-South sailors. Sardis Lake is the largest open body of water in this region, measuring approximately 20 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. Rooke Sails just delivered the 2nd sailboat to the Marina, with many more scheduled. Sailing activities, including a Sailing Association, will flourish easily. A fall sailboat Regatta will be sponsored for both small and large sailboats. So come join the FUN!
