1970 Sabre 34

I am off with old sailing buddies Ed and Dave from my Chicago - Mac and Bayview - Mac days to bring David's new Sabre back from Charlevoix Michigan to Milwaukee Wisconsin.  Winds are predicted from the Northeast at 10 to 15 with waves 1 to 3 feet.  Sounds like a great downwind run, doesn't it?  But then again, the current mid-lake water temperature is 38 degrees.  It is going to be a cold one!

Here is a link to a description of the boat http://www.sailingmagazine.net/boats/6-used-boat-notebook/535-sabre-34
