Foggy Day at Belmont Harbor

South side Belmont from the Fuel Dock.
The Chicago Yacht Club Belmont station and Sailing School
is on the left.

Docks waiting to splash.
I couldn't resist stopping by Belmont Harbor on my way home from work.  I wanted to check out the new docks and the fog was the perfect excuse to stop.

There isn't much open water left in the harbor with regular slips where the star docks were.  It'll be interesting to see how much more congested the harbor feels.

Chicago Match Racing boats.

I saw two boats from the Chicago Match Racing Center coming in under sail.  It was cool (47 degrees) but even with the light wind it didn't feel that bad.

The fuel pumps on the gas dock still listed gasoline at $3.49!  I can't imagine how expensive fuel will be on the water this summer.  I'm sure the lake will be less crowded.

I'm glad I own a sailboat!
