I don't know why you haven't heard from anyone else here in
Minneapolis, but there is definitely a solid scene here. Lake Calhoun
is my normal stomping ground. Waconia and Mille Lacs are well known
spots as well, but a little farther out of town. I hope you plan to
make a stop at Calhoun. Let me know if you need any logistical help
and I'll do what I can. I'm sure there are plenty of others out there
who can tell you more about the other sailing spots around, I grew up
sailing here in the 80's and just moved back last year. Lake Calhoun
is all I sailed back then and it's all I sail now, but I hope to check
out some of the other spots soon.
Stoked you're coming to town!
