Bayfield to Thunderbay
« on: June 27, 2017, 02:54:43 AM »
Dragging my 25 the 8-9 hours up to Washburn Wi. for hopefully 10 days of blowing around Superior.  *happydance*  Planning a run up to Isle Royale, maybe Thunder Bay Canada.   Hoping to rent a slip rest of July thru end of August and take me some 5 day weekends.      If your floating around there I'll be on Solitude.

This was a good trip, didn't make it much further than the Apostles.  Was quickly humbled by that big lake. She gets mean quick.  Left the boat at the marina, for trailer storage so I have an excuse to take a long weekend or 2.

Glad you had a good time. Would love to sail up there from Green Bay one summer.
Face your fears. Chase your dreams.

Hello ! We were in Bayfield around July 1 this year.Picked up our new to us 1991 CP 16 in Minocqua ,Wisconsin and launched in the Washburn Marina. Rented slip #32 for a few days and sailed the bay south of the marina a couple of times. Washburn has a great marina and a very friendly and accommodating  staff. We vacation in Bayfield for a week every summer and our new sailboat will make the trip even better.

Read one of your earlier posts. You mentioned sailing in Iowa. We are from Eastern Iowa. Haven't had our CP 16 on the Mississippi River yet,butlive 3 blocks away. We do spend time on the river in our sea kayaks and around Bayfield and Red Cliff as well.

I was just wandering that Marina last weekend and I think I saw your boat. If not, there's another Com-Pac living in a trailer there.

How's that ramp for launching?
