The Central Regional Regatta is POSTPONED!!
Sailors be on the look out for a suitable venue. Please post ice you ice reports within the Central region. We have the 2016 North American's coming up sooner than you think and everybody needs tuning time and an opportunity to get their neck in shape for a big course.
Northwest lower Michigan is currently snowed out on the lakes that are frozen but with the weather finally cooperating we have several more that are sure to come in soon. Stay tuned.

Sharpen your runners and gather your equipment. Ice is being scouted for the 2016 Centrals! No promises here but it could happen very soon. Stay Tuned and Think Ice!


The 2016 Centrals are still postponed. We do not have a plate large enough for Regatta sailing. There are smaller sailing venues available for scrub racing so get out and sail!
