Return to Oconto

The forecast this morning was for winds out of the north at 10 to 15 and waves at 2-4 foot. I told Barb that it would be a rough ride back if we left this morning and let her make the call. She said lets go home.

We left WavePointe Marina for our return trip to Oconto around 0830. There was some wave action in the Little Sturgeon Bay with lots of pro-fisherman in their small bass boats scattered around. We kept our speed low so we could watch for them until we got out into the Bay of Green Bay then I opened it up to around 15mph.

The waves were hitting us on our starboard bow but the Shangri-La cut through them with no problem. The further we got out from shore the worst the waves got. There were at least 4 footers in the middle but I had no problem staying on course all the way back. Of course I got a good workout with the wheel keeping us on course. We entered the Oconto River around 1000 and were tied with everything secured at the yacht club by 1100.
