I've never visited Lake Winnebago but see that the Wind Power Shop is there at the south end. Might consider sailing up there over a weekend and bring along kids that have some wind surfing experience. Might stay there for 2 days.
Any suggestions on what to do in the area if it is NOT windy?
Is best sailing spot to just launch from park in front of Wind Power if it is windy?

Winnebago is a great sailing spot. Best launch is off of Windpower. The shop is actually just on the south-east shore so it is still good for straight south too.
Kevin does still own the shop, but it is managed by Ben Herdrich (so you may speak with Ben if you call the shop - he will take care of you). They are very family oriented and have many options to get everyone out on the water. Plus, the water is shallow so it is a great learning spot.
