Michigan Sailing Club Bone Chiller Regatta

Sunday October 21, 2018

Sailing on Baseline Lake, just north of Ann Arbor


All classes of sailboats up to 21 feet are welcome.

The regatta will be governed by the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020, the rules of each participating class and the Sailing Instructions.

Results will be based on Portsmouth yardstick.

We will allow co-skippering.

Be sure to wear proper clothing, as the water is cold! For advice check here.


The Regatta is open to club members sailing club boats and anyone sailing their own boats up to 21′ long. Club members must have at least their Basic sailing test signed off (or equivalent skills) at the time of the regatta. In the event of a “High Wind Day”, as designated by the Race Committee, there must be at least one Key or Skipper rated member (or equivalent skills) in each club boat.

Club members can specify ahead of time which hull and sail #s they wish to reserve (first come, first served).
