Greg, I posted a cruising log from 2006 earlier. Here's another link in case you missed it.

David, I was in a transit slip in St Joe last year, ate at a local bar for dinner and took off the next morning. I am planning a trip now for sometime in June or Aug for a week. We will be leaving Michigan City and sailing up your way.

I have been reading articles from lately, but have not read any cruising logs. Where can I read some of those. Hope all is well and prosper in 2009.

My son and my grandson and I are all going - probably on Sunday.

Like Greg I am definitely going to Strictly Sail in Chicago! Anybody else besides us?

I'm curious to know whether people like to read other people's cruising logs. I do, but I might be weird. I posted our 2006 cruise log - done as a sailing magazine article - and I'm wondering how much effort to put into the 2008 log. Tell me what you think.

My little West Wight Potter is small for the Lakes but it gets me around. It also makes me eligible for a seat at the bar loking out at the lake in Two Rivers, WI ( "Trivers" to the locals).

Greg, nice to meet you. I see that Michigan City is your home port. We live in Dayton, Ohio but have a cottage in St. Joseph. Our kids are there, and the boat, so we have plenty of motivation to make the trip. I hope we will see you here often. I've not sailed into Michigan City. We normally go north from St. Jo. New Buffalo is as far south as we've gone.

Where have you been besides M.C. and Muskegon?

My wife and I just started sailing Lake Michigan in 2008. I had a chance to deliever a new Hunter 36 from Michigan City, IN to Mueskegon. We stopped and had dinner one night in St. Joe. We are headed to the Chicago Strictly Sail show at the end of the month. Can't wait for the weather to turn warm again.

Here's a pdf document with photos and stuff about our 2006 cruise to Door County and Green Bay. I haven't got the one for 2008 done yet.GreatCruise2006.pdf

We like White Lake, from the lovely old lighthouse on the channel, to the twin towns of Whitehall and Montague. We found a nice little English tea house in Montague last summer. The municipal marina water was a little thin but the dockmaster was great and the location is very convenient. We were sorry to see an empty place where the old (glove?) factory once stood. Let's see if I can post the photo here:
