Sunset Series

Lake Shore Sail Club has maintained a Coast Guard approved race course located NE of Gaukler Point in Lake St. Clair for forty years. Over those years, the marks and course configurations have changed a number of times. The current course consists of seven 6″ diameter PVC pylons arranged in a 2.60 nm mile diameter hexagon.

Lake Shore Sail Club sponsors the very popular Wednesday Spring and Summer Sunset Series Races, which are open to all area sailors. These two six-race series regularly attract a large number of the areas most avid racing skippers. Weekly results are announced after each race at Brownies at Emerald City Marina.  Series awards are presented during a FREE pizza and beer party after the Summer Series at the Knights of Columbus Hall, in St Clair Shores.

Members of Lake Shore Sail Club are eligible for reduced rates for the Spring and Summer Sunset racing series.

Lake Shore Sail Club has pioneered the development of the “Multi-Sail Concept” where credit is given if a boat races without the use of its spinnaker. This allows for better class splits and flexibility of sail usage to account for both crew and weather variations.
