Re: Grand Haven, MI sailing wednesday nights?

We are across the lake in Milwaukee. We were planning on getting the boat out for the first sail of the year on Sunday. However, it was blowing constant 20 kt with higher gusts. Too high for us to try to figure out our messed up rigging. We need one of those perfect 8-10 kt days (on a weekend)!

We left the Holland channel around 3. Winds were about 12 knots. We got out a few miles and they were pushing 20 so we reefed and that made the ride a lot smoother. We were in a Jeanneau 379 but there were a lot of smaller boats out there too. We got back around 5.

The only time I've sailed out of Michigan is when heading to or coming back from Mackinac Island. It's a little different experience than sailing out of Chicago.
