I'm glad we've got a community of sailors in Louisiana. I'm excited to get out there. My first trip will be a short little jaunt from Bonfouca Marina on the west side of Slidell, into Pontchartrain via Bayou Liberty, and then sailing east under the I-10 bridge to Salt Bayou where I'm meeting some people for a crab boil. Does anybody have any suggestions, recommendations, or advice for sailing that part of the lake just south of Slidell? What do I need to know to get through the Hwy 11 draw bridge? Where is it too shallow to go with 4' draft? What is the best time do day to sail in the summer... are winds better in the mornings and late in the day, or is it the same all the time? Any other situational or navigational advice would be great. Thanks!
