Thanks a lot. This is my fourth season sailing out of Belmont.

Holland is a nice town. We do a mini-vacation just down the coast in Saugatuck for a few days every summer, let the locals take our money and talk behind our backs just like they do to all the other Chicagoans .

I've sailed on the East side of the lake some on others' boats. It was a much different experience than "my" side of the lake. Or maybe I've just gotten lazy with the ease of navigating by the skyline.

Night sailing on a broad reach with just the moon and the Milky Way is also a fairly amazing experience that far too few people ever see any more.
