Windy first sail on Lake Michigan

Just launched our new to us Island Packet 31 on Lake Michigan this month. First sail was from Port Washington to Milwaukee in exciting conditions for me. I'm slipped at McKinley.

Ah yes, this time of year when we still wear parkas on the lakes.

At least you were sailing!

Yeah, the weather was one reason I was single-handing....nobody else wanted to spend their day sailing in 40 degree temperatures!
