Your answer sent me searching Xort. I vaguely recalled hearing the Great Lakes did have regular surface currents. Took some searching, but found relatively current research that finds there can be wind-driven currents up to .5 m/s (~1 knot). Mid-Michigan is noted as one place where you can find this at times.

Here's a cool visualization of "Great Lakes Depth-Averaged Currents Map"

Not sure I've ever felt the impacts of these currents -- I guess I don't pay enough attention to the speedo .

Re: Name your adventure

Two years ago I had a dream to outfit a boat and take my family cruising. We are currently in Islamoralda Florida in the keys after sailing it down the coast from Maryland and have been living aboard since early summer. Dare to dream, and then make those realities!
