Ride the Wave Regatta 9.8.18

Ride the Wave Regatta Michigan City, Indiana September 8, 2018 Temps were cool, but the rain stayed away as our hearty band prepared to tackle the wild waves of Lake Michigan.  Or not; it appears the waves were wild enough for a small-craft warning to be issued, converting our surfing adventure into a flat-water criterium … Continue reading Ride the Wave Regatta 9.8.18
