September 12, 2012 Maple Grove Park Session in Montague

Wind was SSW at 10 to 20 mph so I decided to try out Maple Grove Park for the first time.  It always seems really windy from the south.  It is weedy and shallow at the launch, but deepens in the channel.  Shallow and weedy with sand bar on opposite side.

Used 8.0 and weed fin on Bic.  Great sail!  Speed across the channel and carve jibes in flat water on the east side just to the north of the shallows.  Rip back across and jibe in the weeds on the other side.  Once again no weed problems at all.

Time = 1:29

Distance = 14.7 miles

Ave. speed = 9.9 mph

Max speed = 23.1 mph

4:28 pm until sunset
