Save the date...2020 Commodore Ripard Celebration on August 7th
THE BEST SAILING CLUB VALUE ON LAKE ST.CLAIR
Founded in 1969, LSSC is a family-friendly club that provides extensive opportunities for racing and cruising with an emphasis on fun over frills.
Our racing program includes ten Sunday and Special races for club members and the very popular Wednesday night Spring and Summer Sunset Series which attracts many of the area's avid racing boats. In addition, LSSC hosts "The Inter-Club Team Championship Race" which is open to all DRYA yacht clubs.
Although we don't have a clubhouse, LSSC provides numerous opportunities for socializing. Our cruising program consists of at least three summer cruises to area ports and features group breakfasts, cocktail parties and barbecues. Off-season activities include a fall steak roast (hosted by our past commodores), several weekend social outings and the formal event of the year, the Commodore's Ball.
The THRILL of Racing
The RELAXATION of Cruising
The FELLOWSHIP of Others
LSSC maintains a Coast Guard approved race course located off Gaukler Point in Lake St. Clair.
Our members-only race program includes Sunday, Championship and Special Club races.
In addition to these Club races, LSSC sponsors the popular Wednesday night Spring and Summer Sunset Series Races, which are open to all area sailors. These two six-race series attract a large number of the area's avid racers.
Our summer cruise program consists of three organized cruises to area ports over the Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day holiday weekends. These cruises include group activities such as barbecues, games, radio-control sailboat races, and, when the participants are willing, the occasional karaoke session.
Ports of call can easily be reached by boat or car, enabling all members to join in the fun.
Even though we do not have clubhouse or marina facilities, our racing, cruising and social programs provide many opportunities for interaction among members. We organize year-round social activities such as a steak roast in the fall, off-season "cruises" to local restaurants and breweries, a winter outing, and the formal event of the year, the Commodore's Ball.
