hard to believe that I almost drowned the last time I was at this pier. it was very different lake conditions then, nothing like the flat calm water on this day in the late summer of 2014.

what about the Great Lakes, Joe?

does it always have to be salt water? The Great Lakes would offer some pretty spectacular sailing, Joe. the America’s Cup racing could have been hosted by Chicago, for sure!

Another tide to launch an autumn moon over the dunes

300,000 pageviews & giveaway

a week or so ago, the my2fish Sunfish sailing blog passed 300,000 pageviews (all-time).  it took a little under 4 years to reach 200,000 – and now just over 1 year later it has now passed the 300k mark.

300k

it is interesting (to me at least!), to watch the ebb and flow of the blog visitors.  with a mostly summer sport, it definitely slows down during the winter – and then picks up quite a bit as the weather warms up – peaking in that June/July/August time when sailing is a bit more relevant to most people’s lives.
