Re: Hi, new to sailing just bought a boat... (Chicago Burbs)

I see people sailing lasers & hobies on Biscayne Bay and the open Ocean (calmer days). Why would an 11 foot sailboat be bad on lake michigan. Maybe sail the inner harbors? As for large lake based forest preserves...well, I'd imagine you can sail the Fox River iself. Just stay away from the dams!

This looks promising in Des Plaines: Lake Park Marina
