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!

    I wish i would have seen this thread earlier. I would definitely be down for some practice on lake michigan. My first race and first time on lake michigan were at the racine race this year.
    Heres a couple of gopro videos from moto 2 and moto 3
    There is some footage of you in front of me for awhile. There were a couple of close calls in the second moto. I almost hit you when you were falling haha

    Re: North Point Marina Buoy Practice Thread - Winthrop Harbor, IL

    rhugo there is an old breakwall under water and yes some of them are actually just a few feet under the water its NOT marked and I told the DNR about it but no one has marked them off.



    Good riding Jeff, just got a chance to watch the videos, my 1st race as well and definitely made some rookie mistakes. You should consider coming to the Charleston, WV National this weekend August 18-19 and there is a Canadian National August 25-26 that's just across the Michigan border maybe 6 1/2 hour drive from us the following weekend.


    Looking to setup buoys maybe on 8/22 @ 4:30pm I'll keep everyone posted.

    I'm not going to make it to Charleston, but I am planning on going to the sarnia ontario race on the 25th and 26th.

    Re: North Point Marina Buoy Practice Thread - Winthrop Harbor, IL

    Going to be setting up buoys once again at North Point Marina, will be out 3x a week once she warms up! Hopefully setting up mid May after Vegas SX, if you want to join PM me. Standups preferred but couches are ok as we need rough water to train.
