Lake Accotink Boating


After Lake Accotink, formerly the reservoir for Fort Belvoir, became a public park, the Lake Accotink Yacht Club, founded by Ernest (Buddy) Belote, sailed there between 1972 and 1982. Members raced according to the rules of the International Yacht Racing Association and applied the rules of the America's Cup to the eight-foot dinghies on Accotink waters.
