Lake Michigan Singlehanded SocietyIn the spirit of adventure, self-reliance, competition and camaraderie among sailors
Welcome to Lake Michigan Singlehanded Society. We are a club that promotes short-handed sailing on Lake Michigan, in the spirit of adventure, self-reliance, competition and camaraderie among sailors. We organize two races per year for both single- and double-handed crews. We started with the Q-Race and Solo races back in 1981. In 1987, we added the Doublehanded Championship. The “Double” is quite popular, with an East and West course, both finishing at Port Washington, Wisconsin.
With Singlehanded and Doublehanded sections, you might also consider the Racine Yacht Club’s Hook Race. It starts in Racine, WI, goes through Door County’s Death’s Door, and finishes at Menominee, MI for 189 nm. Last year, they introduced the Super HOOK, rounding the mark in Menominee and returning back to Racine, for a 379 nm course with an optional pit stop allowed in Menominee. To learn more or to register, visit the Hook Race website.
