Bayview Yacht Club…  Hosting Buccaneers Memorial Day weekend…  If you’re near Detroit..you need to be at this regatta!

The 2015 BOD: May 28-31

It’s something old and something new at the 4th annual Bayview Yacht Club One Design Regatta: US Sailing’s 2012 Regatta of the Year Award. With four race circles and an average of 180 boats we are looking to get to the 200 marker for the second time. When you come to Bayview it is about racing sailboats and as we say around here “It’s what we are, it’s what we do”, so come and experience Bayview in our centennial year.

The Old:

As always, you’re invited to Bayview to experience the same great parties, top-notch race committee work and unparalleled camaraderie that you have come to expect at our annual regatta. We have recruited the Midwest’s top PROs and an international jury to provide the best racing experience possible.  Saturday night’s dockside festivities will feature the band Good Gravy, a crowd favorite, to perform until the wee hours of the morning.

The New:

We have interest in the regatta from additional classes and are hoping to add a few one-design fleets to join in the fun.  For the sailors who don’t own a one-design boat or do not have the time to race all three days, we are introducing a one-day Cruising Class division to allow more sailors to participate in one of the premier regattas on Lake St. Clair.  We are in the process of creating new trophies with a little Detroit flair. If you win one, we don’t think you’ll stick this year’s awards on the back of a shelf.

For the Buccaneer class we are offering 2 days of racing, free launch and haul out, free berthing for the weekend, daily and overall awards and entertainment Friday and Saturdaynight for the cost of 80 dollars.
