Are you going to the 2024 Rendezvous in Escanaba? Is your home port not in Lake Michigan? Then this webinar is for you!
Nothern Lake Michigan Chart with routes

Lou Bruska’s years of sailing on Lake Michigan and Marilyn Kinsey’s expertise and years of sailing Green Bay and the region provide a unique insight to sailing from Mackinac Bridge to Escanaba.  It doesn’t need to be a long boring slog.  While this presentation is aimed primarily at the non-Lake Michigan Club members planning to attend the 2024 Rendezvous in Escanaba, Michigan; it gives those Southern Lake Michigan folks coming to the Rendezvous a glimpse of the ports and anchorages in Northern Lake Michigan.  Depending on your boat and cruising choices the trip could take 2-4 days or longer, if you have time and inclination to properly cruise the region.  Remember: getting there and having fun is as important as arriving!
