      Lots of things to run into. Don't run into anything.

      Seriously though... Pay close attention to the SIs. There is a mark before the bridge that often gets missed.

        Well, what to look for in the conditions, is there a favored course in certain conditions, any wind current?

          we wont know the conditions until the weather report but in general there is a breeze out of the southwest in the summer. thermal breeze can sometimes be found off the dunes if its light and warm. Thunderstorms will happen. you will see 00.0 on the speedo. if you're looking for current I'm missing my tuesday flight because its really slow and you will most like die of blood loss from fly bites before getting to the island.

            So no wind driven current on the lake to think about?

              i've seen it on occasion but only on a light air day after a heavy amount of wind that lasts for a few days from one direction. This is rare though and I certainly wouldn't plot a course based on it.

                    Man. I wrote a masterpiece too. I fail at the intertubes.

                            I've tried many times to explain "time" vs. "sailing time." The rest of the world doesn't get it.
