    North Point Marina JetSki Practice Track - Buoys - Winthrop Harbor, IL

    Hey guys going to be setting up buoys often to the south of the North Point Marina launch. If you haven't been there as your riding out into Lake Michigan in the no wake zone you travel south once your out into the lake about a 1,000 feet around the break-wall and into the "cove" beach area. 7-10 buoys will be setup and prefer standups but everyone is welcome. If you are familiar with the marina you also know you can turn right when entering the marina and drive all the way to the beach (dead ends) instead of going left to the boat launch. By going right and straight to the beach you can park and it would be possible to launch there using a beach cart but coming back up the hill would be tough but with a few guys it shouldn't be a problem. Invite some friends and come shred!

    Here is a video from Racine National it was a blast and maybe some motovation for you to come on out!

    Just a FYI, the beach North of the launch is open to PWC again.
    Also, it is beach cart freindly.

    I would love to launch there I just don't know being its so close to the coast guard station if they would bother us so I'd prefer the cove to help eliminate the headaches.

    Depends alot on the weather. This time of year, clear water, sand gravel beaches and hot polish chicks.

    End of August on is prime time IMO. Lots of 4'-6' waves with a few 10' days.

    Just be legal if you go on the weekend, because there is a good chance you may get stopped for a safety check.

    Every law enforcment is there on the weekend, Coast Guard,DNR,Winthrop Harbor P.D. sometimes the Sherrif.

    Weekdays there will only be one Community Service Officer.
