45 Parallel Crossing day 5.5

Cograts to Mark and Rick who made the daunting journey across Lake Michigan!! WOO HOO!!  Nice Run Boys!!

Mother nature was cooperative (not send them 8' seas); but she did make herself known with wind on the nose and a couple of rouge waves that roll up on you like a freight train.

The distant lights from shore, east and west send a subtle message, putting things into perspective; you're a long way from shore - a humbling experience.

So the wind clocking to the east caused havoc and slowed their progress immensely; Changing it up they bared off to follow the breeze making land fall around 100p this afternoon, their goal achieved.

Outstanding!! -
