Sailing on the Great Lakes is equivalent to sailing in the ocean. Macgregors are designed to be coastal cruisers at best, so, sure, you can sail it in Lake Michigan just as any coastal cruiser can sail in the ocean.

Just keep an eye out on the weather and don't get caught out far from shore when a storm hits.
