We could see that more showers were moving across lake toward our destination, Grand Haven. We thought we might not get that far today. The wind picked up about 0930 so we could let out the jib, but stopped about 5 NM from White Lake. Our sailing friend, Paul, was sending messages about a storm in Wisconsin and Illinois that was crossing the Lake. We took a detour to White Lake and hung on a mooring ball at the White Lake Yacht Club for an hour. I nearly fell in lake getting the mooring line through the tiny shackle. Beth had to pull hard on my leg to keep my aboard as I dangled over the side.
We had a nice lunch and hot chocolate while it rained and continued south once it stopped. I became a bit rolly after the rain near Muskegon, but we reached Grand Haven by 1800.
