Re: Traverse Bay Area

Do (can) you anchor out in the bay, or do you take a mooring or a slip in one of the marinas? This will be our first time on (relatively) "big water," so inquiring minds need to know! Thanks for the tips so far! We stopped by our local sail shop last night and they suggested putting in near Traverse City. I'm thinking about sailing from there up to Northport or Sutton's Bay (depending on wind and weather), spending the night, and sailing back. We are just excited to be GOING somewhere on our sailboat rather than just going in circles on small lakes (not that that isn't fun, it is...). We are already on the look out for the next step up, as the dream is to do exactly what you are doing WingNWing, but I'm happy to get all of the experience we can on this little pocket cruiser for right now.
