Re: Lake sailors: how do you like your wind?

Grew up sailing on Lake Erie...very long fetch and very shallow so lots of close set waves...a blast with a Hobie Cat but my friends with Lightnings couldn't hack it.
Now I'm on a 70,000 acre man made lake in Texas and I'll go sailing any day of the year. The only time I turn my back on going sailing is with Home Frontal passage: when the winds on the home front tell me I have something else (something she planned)to do.
