Cary Diehl, our Secretary/Treasurer is now accepting 2021 Membership Applications. You can pay and fill out the form completely online here. This year you will get a sticker to put on your vehicle or trailer to show your support of the S2 7.9 Class. Decals are no longer required to be placed on your boat, however you are still required to be a class member to participate in Class Sanctioned events. Membership for the class is only $40/ year, which is significantly less than Class membership in other boats of similar size: Melges 20- $500/year, Melges 24- $225/year, J70- $100/year, and J24 $90/year. In addition to supporting the Class, your dues go towards the class website, the rudder replacement option and most importantly the mast replacement program. Being a current class member also entitles you to a discount if you are ever in need of a new mast or rudder. There have been reports that the linked Google form does not work on certain computers at work. If so, try a home computer or mobile device.

Registration is now open for the
Lake Huron Championship Regatta
August 7-8

Join the S2 Class for a summer Regatta on gorgeous Lake Huron. This Regatta is a great warm up for the National Championship. One of the highlights of this regatta is the infamous Port Huron Yacht Club after race activities. The race organizers have planned great activities for both Friday and Saturday evenings. Trailer storage is available with plenty of hotels and AirBnBs nearby. PHYC is in the process of improving their ramp and hopeful it will be done by the regatta. If not, you may use their crane free of charge or a public ramp is available up the river.

Join the S2 7.9 Class in Grosse Ile, Michigan as the first Class Regatta of 2021. Grosse Ile is at the mouth of the Detroit River and the Northwest corner of Lake Erie. It is about 30 min South of the City of Detroit. The recent addition of the Lake Erie Championship has quickly become a class favorite. There is a ramp on site with plenty of room for setup and trailer parking. The clubhouse and grounds are fantastic venue for post regatta fun. Cary Diehl and Ford Yacht Club are aiming for another great regatta.

Please note a few differences for this year:

After registering online, please print this form and bring the form along with your paymnet to FYC.

The Grosse Ile County Bridge is currently closed for repairs and the only way on and off the island is the Grosse Ile Toll Bridge on the North end. Toll is only charged to come on the island, and leaving is free. More information on current toll rates to come onto the island can be found here.

Due to COVID dining restrictions, reservations must be made in advance for dinner on Friday or Saturday nights. Please call the Ford Yacht Club at 734-676-8422 ex. 2 or email
