We took friends out Sunday. Perfect day for a sail out there! Put the #3 up and a reef in the main. With 1' seas it was a very pleasant ride. Later on, as our guests became more comfortable with the idea of heeling and the wind dropped from about 15 kts down to 12 kts or so, I shook out the reef.

Which Lake St Clair were you on Sunday?
We went out from 10 Mile east past the St Clair light, basicly the middle of the lake around 1pm. Winds were 18 to 22 with a gust to 30. Around 5pm it slowed down to about 15 for about a 15 minutes and then picked back up to 18 to 22.
