Where are we?

Based in Washington Park Marina in Michigan City, Indiana, we feature easy to navigate ‘reachy’ races with an emphasis on fun.

How does it work?

We do a quick skipper's meeting pre-race to discuss the weather and the race course for the day. The meeting is in the pavilion at the 400 dock. Buoy races are kept to less than 2 hours.

If you are looking to crew, come to the skipper's meeting and we will find you a ride.

All are welcome. No membership or experience is required. Click here to join our mailing list to receive updates on our race schedule and results.
