Due to last last minute Covid19 related schedule juggling, CRAM is holding an additional two day regatta at Crescent Sail Yacht Club (CSYC) this year and they have graciously agreed to host us with very short notice.

Crescent Sail Yacht Club is a laid back and friendly club, however we need to make some alterations to our traditional set-up to keep everything safe:

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.
  • 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.

Crescent Sail Yacht Club, 276 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan 48236

From I-94, take exit 224 east on Moross Road for approximately 2.5 miles to Lake Shore Road (Moross dead ends at Lake Shore). Turn right at Lake Shore Road. Crescent Sail Yacht Club will be on your left (~1/4 mile south of Moross Road).

Again, some changes to accommodations are required.
  • No keelboat housing will be available.
  • There is space for only 1-2 RVs due to construction (storm damage repair) - these need to be reserved ahead of time on a first come, first served basis. Please contact Uli Gollwitzer by Friday, June 12th to confirm availability and reserve a spot.  
  • Please note that due to city ordinance, we regret that neither tent camping nor pets can be accommodated on club property. 
Hotels are also an option.  There are several within 20minutes of the club.  We leave it to your amazing Google skills to find them.

Finally, if you need alternate arrangements, there are several sailors in the SE Michigan area with extra beds that would be happy to host you.  Please contact Jeff Rehm or the Commodore, Alex (at the bottom) to make arrangements.

There is no structured hospitality planned due to COVID-19.
