Re: 104th Running of the Chicago / Mac

So what's the plan? Saturdays forecast show lighter air with more air on the Wisconsin shore. Friday looks like a beat. Hopefully I'll be at the party when you guys are beating up the lake in 15 knots. If the waves are bad, overtim your main a little and a have the jib out a little more than normal for a beat. It will help you drive up in the waves. And by all means keep the boat flat. Get those fannies on the weather rail.

3 tips for a first timer- 1. never go inshore at Sleeping Bear dunes no matter how good it looks. 2. Always check the current at the last can after Grays Reef channel before turning east into the Mac straits. Current with you- down the middle, against you north edge of the straits to the bridge. 3. The odds for inside at the Maintou Islands are 90% . Going outside is 10%. Have a very compelling reason to go outside.

There will be pics I am sure! I wish yellowbrick updated more frequently. Here is the wind that they are looking at... LMOFS: Lake Michigan Surface Wind Forecast Guidance

Re: 104th Running of the Chicago / Mac

Oh man, this is hilarious. It looks like Il Mostro broke. It's at the dock - while Juliana is still ripping it.

Go AFOCers!
