Re: Single-handed sail on Lake Michigan

Sounds like fun. Just be careful. It gets rougher in the Great Lakes than in the Atlantic ocean at times. There are tighter wavelengths in shallower water. Get one of those micro-burst storms and your SOL. You got the cold water too. Just watch the weather forecasts closely before you go out & have the proper safety gear in easy reach.
