Although this regatta is hosted by our good friends CRAM in Michigan, it will still be scored as a CRAW season points regatta by our scoring chair.

In an effort to reestablish a large, annual 'must-attend' catamaran regatta in the midwest, CRAW is working with CRAM to bring Cat Fight back to life (This will be Cat Fight VII). The 2018 event will be a 2-day event, although future iterations could potentially see an additional day or two of racing.

Please consider attending this event and help grow our sport. The people at CRAM have proven year after year that they can run fantastic events with great venues and solid competition.

If this is your first time racing with CRAM, registration is free. Otherwise, the fee is $60/65 for single/double-handed, increasing to $70/75 Thursday, 5/23 at midnight. A shirt is included with registration.

There is a buffet dinner Saturday night at the New Buffalo Yacht Club. The deadline to reserve dinners is Saturday, 5/26 at 6pm. Cost is $18/person, payable at the yacht club. Please see the event webpage for menu options and other hospitality details. Don’t miss the party afterwards!

RVs are allowed to stay on-site for a $25 fee and must remain connected to boat trailers. There is, however, no camping/tents allowed on-site so please be prompt in reserving a campsite or room at one of the nearby hotels. Again, see the event page on CRAM's website for accommodations details.

Please direct any questions to CRAW Commodore Tyler Gruen, regatta chair John Nekus (CRAM), or CRAM Commodore Uli Gollwitzer (commodore@cramsailing.com).

See you on the water for the largest Midwest catamaran regatta of 2018!
