My sole experience sailing was when the scout troop went on a 50 mile canoe trip in the Boundary Waters area of Minnesota. Spectacular place to you Minnesotans! We were on Pine Lake and it was June so of course the weather turned bad and started sleeting. the lake was so choppy we couldn't go out for fear of capsizing. We lashed our four canoes together beside one another and tied a poncho to two paddles and proceeded to sail down the lake. One of the several times I have about froze to death in June. We are going back up there in 2003. Crazy Larry convinced the boys there was a line through the middle of Pine Lake to show the border between Canada and the US. My 24 year old son still says he saw it.
