so some friends and I are going to take a camping trip to Holland Michigan (we're in Colorado). We are bringing my H18 along, and I'm just wondering if ya'll have any tips for sailing on Lake michigan, I've heard some suggestions that it's riskier than open ocean due to fast weather shifts, or whatever that happens up there. Not that we don't get that in CO already... haha
anyway I'm just looking for some advice / facts that would suggest not sailing lake michigan, and going for a smaller lake instead (specifically safety).
If it were up to me I'd just go, but, other members of the party wanted to get some more thoughts on the Big lake.
