The 2018 Central Lakes Regional Regatta is Called On for December 29 & 30th at Houghton Lake, Michigan.
Launch Location: DNR site on West side of lake off Old US Highway 27 next to the Lakeside resort.
Please be aware of the following: The ice has not been sailed. It has been walked by two ranked sailors due to no wind at time. It has been rated a 7 and the lake was 7 to 7.5 inches thick, before the current rain event that is going through the area.
On Saturday morning the ice & racing area will be sailed. Please do not leave the pit area until the ice has been checked. I will have a full ice report at the skippers meeting.
