From my times there it seemed that the winds tended to be upstream or downstream (or not much wind). I would think you would want a smallish boat that performs very well with an easy to use spinnaker system. I don't know candidate boats well enough to recommend one, but something with a self-tending jib would be good.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
