Check and see who has pre-registered HERE

CRAM is holdinga 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.

Crescent Sail Yacht Club, 276 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan 48236 csyc entrance
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).

If you'd like to stay on-site, we have a couple options:
  • There is space for up to 4 RVs - these need to be reserved ahead of time on a 1st come, 1st served basis.
  • In addition, CSYC has limited on-site housing available via bunking in a "big boat".  Think of it as a floating camper - it actually works quite well!
In either case, if you'd like to stay at the club, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday, July 17th 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.
