Cape Dory Rendezvous – St. Joseph, MI, July 8-10

Southern Lake Michigan Cape Dory Rendezvous/Sail-in
St. Joseph, MI – July 8-10

The Ariel crew, Dave and David, will be hosting this year’s Lake Michigan Rendezvous at their home port of St. Joseph, MI, July 8-10. Come by boat, car or train! There will be sailing, great food, gorgeous Lake Michigan sunsets, a few prizes, plenty of good conversation, and maybe even a trip to the Midwest’s largest marine store, Wolf’s Marine.

St. Joe is an easy sail across the lake from Chicago and within a few hours of Holland, South Haven, and Saugatuck – just a few of several enjoyable ports of call along Lake Michigan’s eastern shore. Come enjoy a great town with an updated municipal marina, a quaint downtown with a number of tasty eateries, and great views of the lake. Unwind, see the sights, and meet up with other great CD owners.

Drive-ins are encouraged, too! There are a couple of nice hotels, one of which overlooks the lake, and plenty to do in the area.

Hope to see you this summer! Check out the St. Joseph harbor report on this site for information. Here is the information sheet for this year’s rendezvous:

Here are some quick distance estimates from Chicago, Milwaukee, and Holland to St. Joseph. We’d love to have CDs from all over Lake Michigan, so work St. Joseph into your cruising plans if you can.
