Chimo Race

The Chimo, which means "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 9.5-nautical mile course finishing back at WYC.  The start is always a crowd pleaser.

Date: Wednesday October 5, 2022

The 47th Annual Chimo Race is open to all boats owned by clubs, or members of clubs, holding current memberships in the Detroit River Yachting Association (DRYA) and others on the invitation of the WYC.

Registration is $30 for all boats except for the Registrants in the DRYA “Counter” Series and the WYC Fall Series.
