Sailing The Sweetwater Sea
To a sailor living in the heartland
of North America, expansive
Lake Superior is an invitation
|But on the southwestern shore of the Upper Lake the sailing is Superior.|
Here is Chequamegon Bay and the Apostle Islands.
And here is always a refuge to be found - from whatever it is you are trying to escape.
|"This is one of the
loveliest moments of life: the moment after you have shut down the engine of a sailing
The sudden silence always comes as a sweet surprise.
You let the bow fall off the wind, feel the sails fill, feel the boat heel gently for the instant it takes the craft to recognize its new mysterious power, then feel it surge forward, lines taunt, bow rising, sails pulling, gathering momentum now, doing its business, in control, on course."
