Consider taking a ride to Milwaukee Sept. 4 to hear the well-known Indiana native Dave Rearick talk about his around-the-world voyage on the Farr FC 40 Bodacious Dream. As some of you know, our own ex-commodore John Hoskins assisted Dave as a weather router during certain legs of the circumnavigation. John also sailed with Dave on a string of Bodacious boats, the last being the Santa Cruz 52 called Bodacious IV, on which they sailed to Hawaii in a crewed Transpac, finishing 3rd in 2013.
We found this on Sailing Anarchy. Click on the photo to enlarge. This is a picture taken of a wave crashing against the north pier at St. Joseph, MI last Wednesday, March 8 near sunset. For the fact junkies out there, the wind blew 40 knots, gusting 60 from the west with a fetch of only 51nm. The brown in the wave is sand pulled up from a depth of 20 feet. The lighthouse seen is 57 feet high with a rear range light at 53 feet. The 36 foot tall front range and light at the end of the pier can not be seen. Lake Michigan ain’t a place for wimpy sailors!
