The Regatta is open to all sailors and ALL Classes of sail boats up to 21′ with a US Sailing Portsmouth number. Only Members of the Michigan Sailing Club (MSC) may sail club owned boats.

The regatta will be governed by the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020, the rules of each participating class and the Sailing Instructions.

We will allow co-skippering.

There is no fee for this regatta; it’s free!
We will collect an optional fee ($5/person) at the skippers meeting for lunch.
Feel free to bring your own food and drinks if you prefer.

Club members may reserve a boat in advance on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a waiting list if all boats are reserved.

The regatta will be held at the club’s property on Baseline Lake, at 8010 Strawberry Lake Road in Dexter, Michigan.

sounds like a nice event if you’re in the Detroit metro area and haven’t gotten your sailboat out on the water yet this spring!
