Will be visiting Chicago in late June; any advice on where to sail (do
people windsurf in Chicago?), where to rent a board, and any other tips
would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Call Jackie at Windward Sports 773.472.6868 and she can fill you in on rental
Best sailing spots are Lake Michigan, launching from Evanston (Greenwood St.
Beach) or Wolf Lake.
We do windsurf here, but you can't count on wind in June - depends on fronts

As an alternative, Lincoln Park Boat Club has some very challenging fla***er
kayaks and rowing sculls. Most of the time in the summer that pesky wind is
not a problem for paddlers and rowers.
