2018 Letter from the Commodore

Written by

CRAM racers,

Welcome to the sailing season 2018! Some of our members have already been sailing, be it in Florida, or - the more crazy amongst us, here in really cold water in Michigan! Our first regatta at Crescent Sail Yacht Club is less than two weeks away. I hope to see many of you at the Kickoff in the “D”.

It is true, we are less than two weeks away from our first CRAM regatta!  Some of us couldn’t wait and were able to train or race in Florida before. Let’s hope the mild weather continues and we’ll all have a nice weekend to “Kickoff in the D” at CSYC May 13th/14th.  You can register here.

With 9 CRAM regattas we have a packed season ahead (Details here), including two new venues: Manistee and Boyne City!

2016: The Year of the 16

Written by
This has been quite an incredible year to say the least, and I wanted to take a moment to thank our 2016 Hobie 16 members. It has been an honor to server as your fleet captain for the past two years. My decision to move to the F18 fleet came with a heavy heart. Ever since I joined CRAM I have looked with envy to our bigger catamaran brothers, but with my opportunity to move up it was difficult thinking about the fleet I was leaving behind. It’s not all about the competition, but the friendships forged that mean the most.

2016 Kickoff in the D

Written by
CRAM typically starts the season in mid May at the Crescent Sail Yacht Club on Lake St. Clair near Detroit. Every year the organizers stay in close touch, anxiously watching the weather. In past years we’ve had to cancel the regatta the day before it started – especially because wind, air and water temperatures were matching. Think about that… ☺ This year’s forecast was not quite drastic enough to do so.

2014 Tawas Bay

Written by
Don’t hoist the spinnaker on a screaming reach….

Wow…. Another great sailing event for 2014 is in the books.  The Tawas location has proven to be a fan favorite for quite a few years, and this year was no exception.   Eric Kennedy on race committee ran 2 distance events on Saturday and buoy racing on Sunday for a great mix of different types of racing.  Last year Ed and Tara resurrected the distance event format and hopefully this will continue in the future.

Dear CRAM Member,

As we look forward to the 2014 sailing season I would like to communicate changes that were approved at the fall membership business meeting. There was much discussion regarding the difficulty in filling club officer and regatta volunteer (race committee, hospitality, etc...) positions. In recent years the pool of volunteers has declined to the point where the same small group of members are performing all of the work. For the club to continue to offer first class regattas and cover our expenses, including planning for future needs, the work needs to be shared by all members.

2013 Higgins

Higgins Lake: “Pure Michigan” at its finest.

In typical Midwest fashion, if you didn’t like the weather just wait five minutes!

We had sunshine, rain, lots of wind, and no wind, forecasted weather for shorts and t-shirts, but turned to warm packs and dry suits - great suggestion from Tara Cunningham!

In terms of the weather, we really saw just about everything, except snow...Thank God!
