Cool!   Cool
I'll try to block out the time to get up there!

One question, blocks or rope,what is the pefered starting line?

I'm not sure there is a preference.  Each has its advantages/disadvantages.

For a small (20'ish boats) informal regatta, you may even be able to get away without a starting line at all...

Cheers,

Here is the first choice location and accomadations.The owner has agreed to a great rate of $35 per person (that is Canadian ).Lake is ideal for freezing early as it averages 7' in depth.He has pretty much assured me there will be ice by the third week in Nov.

There is enough accomadations to hold 50-60 people.

Spent the afternoon surveying the primary regatta site.White Fish Lake in Nonalu On. it is an awesome location.The Lake is 10 miles long 2 miles wide and situated at high elevation making for good winds.The Windy Pines Resort is breath taking.Beautifull new fully furnished cabins include a hot tub and H.D. flat sceen T.V,Stove fridge..all the luxuries.
There was already a film of ice by shore today.Unfortunatly the high reached 7 Celcious.Keep in touch as the weather here is cooling rapidly.Best bet is 3rd or 4th weekend of November.

The good news is it will be cooler out at White Fish lake as it is 30 miles away from the warming effect of Lake Superior. Smiley
