Muskegon Lake Sunday Feb 10, 2019
Time to rig up and go sailing.
Saturday the club was becalmed. Wind approaching 10 mph is forecast for Sunday.
Jim Fetters and Andy Bos sailed in Friday’s gale and said the ice is fine. They left their boats and they’re returning to sail.
Balcom Cove launch at the western end of Muskegon Lake has attracted the Arrows, Renegades and Skeeters. There are a few DNs there too.
The club’s grilling contingent will gain rave reviews by making an appearance.
There is a parking lot full of ice fishermen also launching there. Get there early or park on Lakeshore Drive to avoid a possible parking ticket.
Muskegon Yacht Club is open.
If you’re planning to sail, it’s also good to get on the phone and invite a friend.
Overflow launching: We will find much more room to park and launch at Hartshorn Marina in the middle of the lake’s south shore.
