sailing off Cleveland
|We packed the boat up |
Thursday night (7/29)& left about 1 a.m.
for Huron, Ohio and
the Tartan Rendezvous.
|We arrived in Huron about 8 a.m.|
There were about 30 other
Tartans there of all sizes

|Monday we sailed on|
to Put in Bay
Instead of docking
we anchored in the bay
on a mooring ball.
We had to call the
water taxi to get to shore
The dogs loved the water taxi

|Put in Bay had a great beach for the dogs to swim|

Wednesday was windy & rainy.
The forecast for the rest of the week was high winds and waves getting worse Thursday & Friday.
We decided to leave Put in Bay & head back to Cleveland.
Although not too bad when we left the Bay (about 15-20 knot winds & waves 3-5 feet)the weather quickly worsened.
A squall line moved in (not forecasted) and winds were upwards of 30 knots, gusting higher at times.
Wave we 6-8 feet.
We had hoped to get to Vermilion or Lorain for the night, but because of the conditions we got as far as Huron.
Although the weather improved Thursday, the wind & waves didn't subside until Friday night, so we headed back to Cleveland on Saturday.A wave sequence coming over the breakwall at the Huron Lighthouse on Thursday 8/5.
