Re: Grand Haven, MI sailing wednesday nights?
We left the Holland channel around 3. Winds were about 12 knots. We got out a few miles and they were pushing 20 so we reefed and that made the ride a lot smoother. We were in a Jeanneau 379 but there were a lot of smaller boats out there too. We got back around 5.
The only time I've sailed out of Michigan is when heading to or coming back from Mackinac Island. It's a little different experience than sailing out of Chicago.
