Hello from Chicago

I'm Jason, a new poster from Chicago, where the lake is frozen.

My wife and I cruise Lake Michigan on our 34' Catalina. We sometimes get out of the midwest, having chartered in Corpus Christi and Charlotte Harbor.

Fair winds!

Lots of Great Lakes sailors here in additon to the more salty. Summer Great Lakes sailing is about as good as it gets.

Welcome,

Always good to say hello to new site members and hopefully one day we'll also get a chance to cruise in your region. It certainly sounds like a great cruise area and who knows - maybe swop a story or two.

Cheers
JOHN

We've been there as long as we've owned a boat and find it a great facility.
