UHHC Progress Report - April 29, 1:30 p.m.

1:30 PM call from Dan. THEY ARE UNDER SAIL! The Intrepid 3 are out in Lake Michigan and sailing south. Dan and Mark are catamaraned and Toby has outriggers. They all have sails. The winds are good as are the lake conditions. They have gone over 340 miles so far.
Dan says "It doesn't get any better than this!"
Jon's tracker shows that he is about at that big point south of Saugutuck and Douglas. I don't know whether or not he has sails. If he doesn't the Intrepid 3 could reel him in if these conditions hold. I have to figure out how to keep up with Lake Michigan wind and wave reports. Can anyone help me?
Dan will call tonight.

Not a lot of points, but this site has wind info for Holland, and Benton Harbor:
