CRAM is holding a two day regatta at Crescent Sail Yacht Club (CSYC).  This is the first time we've had an event at CSYC in mid-summer and one thing is for sure: the water will still be nice and warm. Regardless, where else can you sail in two countries within 10 minutes of launching? Crescent Sail Yacht Club is a laid back and friendly club and we hope you enjoy your time with us.  All catamarans are invited to this weekend regatta.

Robbie Daniel and Jill Nickerson from Red Gear Racing will be here providing on-the-beach and on-the-water training for those interested, similar to what we did last fall. Included in your registation fees are beach briefings and a "start clinic." We will try to run multiple starts for a race, when possible, so that every regatta participant can practice boat control and starting. Additional training is available; for more information, contact Alex Hart or Chris Tuckfield.

These COVID-19 mitigation guidelines are being offered as if the event were being held today in order to set expectations for prospective competitors. CRAM and CSYC intend to follow all laws, rules and orders of the State of Michigan when making decisions that impact the event. In the event the laws, rules or orders become more or less restrictive as it relates to competitive sailing regattas, these COVID-19 guidelines (and the event itself) may change.

  • The regatta will be limited to 25 boats (up to 50 competitors) in order to avoid congestion on the club grounds and facilities.
  • Face coverings are recommended.
  • Boats should be stored 10’ apart.
  • All skippers meetings, announcements and awards will be held outside.
Special Facility Updates:
  • Club restrooms are limited to 3 occupants at a time and facemasks must be worn when using them.
  • No showers!
  • The clubhouse will remain closed for the entire event.
  • Both of the club's launching areas may be used to avoid congestion.
  • In case of inclement weather, all participants and their guests need to shelter in their own vehicles.
