Crescent Sail Yacht Club, MI
"Crescent", as it is known in the world of sailing, is a club exclusively for sailors. The only power boats moored at the club are workboats used for running regattas. The club's man-made harbor juts into the waters of Lake St. Clair at 276 Lake Shore Road in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan.
Crescent was founded in 1933 by a determined group of sailing and racing devotees. Their depression-era experiences had a telling effect on the concepts and principles under which Crescent functioned then and now. Founded as a sailing club for "men of moderate means" (which now includes women), Crescent has the tradition that members work eighteen hours annually for the club as part of their membership. Two annual workdays organize the effort to improve and maintain the facility. These workdays also provide the benefit of developing close friendships and camaraderie that extend into Crescent sailing activities.
