Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

Hello Michigan windsurfers,

I have been sailing around TC for about 10 years now.  I always go to Acme roadside park.  It has a nice grassy set up and is good sailing for most of the winds we get.  Sometimes there are even other windsurfers around.  Only drawback is its kinda a long walk trough a mix of rocky swampy stuff to get to the water.  

Anyway the wind forcast for this afternoon looks ok and I was planning on going out.  Is anyone else planning on sailing today in TC?  If so where do you launch?  I was kinda hoping to find a new place with out driving all the way to lake MI.  Wind forcast is 31013G22kts.  Not awesome but doable.  See you on the water.

I think I may have posted something similar to this last summer^^^    Ended up sailing at acme park.  The wind came up in the afternoon and two other people out sailing.  Overall a good day.

Hi Kyle, 

I have a conference at the Grand Traverse in June every year and always bring a car full of gear.  I have had several good sessions sailing from the Acme park.  I liked it better years ago when the water levels were higher and the walk through the rocks was not so far but such is life.  The wind has been light the last couple of years so I have been kiting about 5 miles north (Maple Bay Preserve?) instead.  Hopefully I will see you in Acme next year.
