Stan Jones and Don Jones sailed Dec. 1, 2018
The Jones brothers sailed the Manistee Lake near Kalkaska, north of where US 131 transitions from expressway to two-lane highway, with friends from the Grand Traverse IYC and Jim Grogan from Oakland County.
Stan said they had fun. They were prepared to hit the road when ice of suitable safety was found by the GTIYC principal ice checker, Bob Gray.
That lake is snowed out until after a thaw.
Manistee Lake in Kalkaska County was the venue for the GTIYC’s Fun Regatta in March 2000.
