Michigan Summer Itinerary advise?
I will be spending a week on a Morgan 321 out of Eldean's in Holland Michigan and have the following Itinerary. My crew will be relatively green with only a couple of day sails and one overnight crossing from Chicago to Michigan City and back. I am very familiar with this boat and sail it often and have a have been sailing for about 5 years 4 of which have been on larger boats out of chicago. I am trying to keep from having to do any night sails into unfamiliar waters. Does this seem reasonable and what would you change if it were your trip.
Sunday: Arrive at the boat, Shakedown sail either on the big lake or on lake Macatawa Conditions permitting) . Stow provisions and prepare the boat (Davit and Dink, check lines, rode etc.)
Following destinations are as weather permits. We will have the boat from Sunday to Sunday. I have built in 5 harbors in 7 days on the water so that I have a weather window of a couple of days and if it is looking like a bad forecast we can drop a destination if need be.
1. North 30nm to Muskegon (Grand Haven if needed to cut short)
2. South 10nm to Grand Haven
3. South 27nm to Saugatuck (Additional 18nm to South Haven if weather permits
4. North 18nm to Saugatuck (if in South Haven) or South 18nm to South Haven (if in Saugatuck
5. Return to Holland
What are your thoughts?

I would rather admit I'm a fool with the possibility of finding I am not, than to deny it showing all that I truly am.
