Hi there,
Driven nuts by luck of windy days for windsurfing, I have decided to try something new - cat sailing. Hopefully upgrading 7.5 sq m sail to almost 75 sq m sail will easy my wind adiction. Just got my first cat 2 weeks ago (solcat 18) and I am ready to go (I think). Question is where?
I live in Lake Zurich, northwest suburb of Chicago and looking for:
1. Best place to test this boat (kind of reluctant to test it on Lake Michigan unless you know of safe place to do it there)
2. Best places to sail around here
3. Other cat sailors that are looking to have some fun on the water :D

wind adict:
Lake Geneva, there are quite a few sailers there (I used to live in the area). I'm also a pilot and the lakeside airport right on the water is my all time favorite airport to fly to. It's also a great place to spend the day, lots of nice restaurants and bars. Lots of cool mansions to see (Wrigley mansion, old playboy mansion ,etc). Just jump on highway 12 and take a left of wisconsin 50, takes you right into town, I think theirs a launch at Flatiron park.
