Wednesday Night Race Series

The passion for sailing is front and centre during Windsor Yacht Club's famous Wednesday night sailboat races.  Some 50 crews race around marks in Lake St. Clair weekly, delighting onlookers as they finish directly in front of WYC.  After the races, the crews belly up to the bar at WYC and enjoy the camaraderie of their fellow sailors and hatch tall tales about their racing prowess over a pint and burgers.
