Re: Lake Michigan Sailing dinghy race?

It might be more fun to race somewhere, overnight there, and race back the next day. The party potential would be great since friends & followers could drive to the overnight site (a state park somewhere? an accommodating host club??) and have it set up before the racers arrived. You could do it over a weekend. The issue would be to coordinate with different classes at various clubs so as to not conflict with their existing race schedules. You'd also want to ensure their support to have enough boats in each class to make it interesting for everybody. Sounds like fun to me. Wish I had a suitable dinghy! (A Dyer Dhow would NOT be a good choice for this event.)
