Sunrise at the lake

Chimo Race

The Chimo, which mean "I am friendly" in Inuktitut (language of Northern Canada), is an end-of-season event open to sailors of all clubs in the Windsor and Detroit area. Starting in the Detroit River directly in front of WYC, sailors head out into the middle of Lake St. Clair to complete a 7.2-nautical mile course finishing back at WYC. The start is always a crowd pleaser.

The next Chimo will be held on Sept 30, 2020
