Re: Duluth to Knife River

Congrats on the new boat, and the big sail. I don't know the 34 personally, but all Crealock's have great reputations as being very solid, serious sea boats. I have no doubt it can handle most conditions with easy.

Now that you've sailed a little way north, you should plan to come all the way. The north shore of Lake Superior (the real north shore) has some of the best cruising grounds anywhere. East of Thunder Bay the shore is rugged and creviced, with lots of little tuck-ins everywhere. Further east along the far shore the land becomes speckled with big sandy beaches. And best of all, there are very few cruisers out there.
