On May 3rd, Bayview Yacht Club will be opening its doors and kicking the Detroit sailing season into high gear. We call it 'Opening Day and Fitting-Out Party', but what you really need to know is if you want to get more involved in the sport of sailing, learn more about a one-design fleet, or just go for a sail on someone else's boat, this is your big chance.

We will have participation from most of the local one-design fleets including Etchells 22, Cal 25s, 36.7s, J-120s, T-10s, Lightning, U-20s and many more. We will also have some hot new boats like the J-70 on-hand to check out. If sailing from dry land is more your speed or if your kids have been bugging you to get a RC sailboat, there will be a full RC demo fleet available to test out too.

Objective of Event: To promote all things sailing to anyone interested in getting more active in any aspect of our sport - what kind of sailing we do, and how you can get involved.

Anna Tunnicliffe won gold at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in the Laser Radial before shifting her sights to the Women’s Match Racing event for the London 2012 Olympics. Here, she came up shy of expectation and left sailing for the CrossFit Games, but now she is returning to her roots.

You spin me right round
Vinyl records went the way of the dodo with first CDs, and then now with the likes of MP3 and streaming. Vinyl records went the way of the dodo with first CDs, and then now with the likes of MP3 and streaming. Recently, we have had unbelievable records set by Thomas Coville and then Armel Le Cléac’h. Soon (with over 1200nm in the bank as it were), it would seem to be the turn of the crew on board IDEC Sport for a record after their spin right round, as well. This is quite simply, terrific stuff.
