Refuge Harbor Regatta

August 21st and 22nd

Port Sanilac, MI

Check and see who has pre-registered HERE

Located on Michigan's eastern shore, in 1951 Port Sanilac was one of the first locations to have a man-made harbor constructed to create harbors of refuge every 15 miles along the coast. Fast forward 67 years and now this iconic little lakeside town, and the beautiful beach within its harbor, has now become another favorite venue for CRAM to bring its thrilling multi-hull racing. Our event location is right in the middle of town and is sure to draw curious onlookers as well as competitive sailors. Saturday night we look forward to dinner at the Blue Water Sports Bar & Grill (only a block away), and after dinner, we can expect some live music in the nearby local park.


Port Sanilac is located on the eastern edge of the Michigan thumb. To get there take M46 east out of Saginaw or M25 north from Port Huron.

Arrangments have been made with the city to camp right downtown close to the beach.  There isn't much in the way of hotels, but there are a few bed and breakfasts in the area. We'll leave it to your creativity and Google to figure it out :)


The Blue Water Sports Bar & Grill is a block away from where we'll be camping. Although we don't collect money for dinner here, we'd appreciate a headcount, so please either add to your registration below, or you can add separately here:

Number Joining Dinner:

In the park adjacent to our camping area, Port Sanilac features live music every Saturday night. Hopefully, that is up and running this year!
