Lake St Clair is indeed s treasure and a fantastic sailing lake, we are in our 8th season on the lake with a sailboat and loving every minute of it.
Have you been night sailing yet? I highly recommend it. The winds pick up, all the jet skis are off the water, most of the powerboats are gone and it's quiet, very quiet. We love going out after midnight and leaving the radio off and just sailing... The Nautical mile is well lit up and you can always find your way home but the peace and serenity of the lake at night is truly something to experience...
probably either,,, but got to warn those serious racers out there,,, Im very new to this.
So probably beercan to start. But I can only think that racing will be fun too.
I only have the experience on my boat to date, and I know I dont know much. I have read alot and talked to friends that have sailed in the past, but have not had the opportunity to bring them out for a day(to pick their brains).
I will have the boat out of the water the weekend of 7-24/25, cleaning her up and a coat of bottom paint b4 we take her to grand traverse bay, soooooooooooo
If anyone wants a lazy crew member, Im available!!
Saw a TON of sailboats out tonight, the winds were pretty consistent between 13 & 17 kts, we were sailing from Nautical Mile to Strawberry Island & back, what a beautiful night; great sunset, great wind, ahhhhhhhh This is summer time!!! Too bad it's freakin September already!
