Welcome to the homepage of the Grand River Sailing Club (GRSC). GRSC is located in Grand River, Ohio and has approximately 70 members from the myriad of dockage and clubs along the Grand River and nearby marinas and yacht clubs. Since its incorporation in 1981, the club has organized sailboat racing and cruising events. Races are held on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Wednesday races are followed by burgers and cocktails at Pickle Bills in Grand River. Sunday races are followed by a "Keg and hot dog gathering" at Grand River Marine (Old Sailing Center) where you will find race results. GRSC supports and follows the guidelines of the following organizations, I-LYA (Inter-Lake Yachting Association), PHRF (Performance Handicap Racing Formula) and US Sailing. The GRSC racing fleet includes both 'Spinnaker' and 'JAM' (jib and main only) fleets. Our course consists of eight turning marks and two starting marks to permit a variety of courses. This enables the race committee to select a course well suited to the prevailing wind and sea conditions on any given day. The races are scheduled around the major Lake Erie Regattas to allow our members to attend these events without sacrificing a position in the GRSC Race Series. Each racer serves a mandatory stint as committee boat, determined by lottery. The club has its own Regatta in August. Holiday "fun" races are sponsored with invitations to all club members. And when volunteers can be found "novice" race classes are held. In 1995 a dingy fleet was added.

     The cruisers usually sponsor a 2 week cruise in July, a picnic at the Marina, and several other social events.

     The club publishes a monthly newsletter and sponsors four general membership parties; Spring General Membership meeting, Election of New Officers (Octoberfest), Welcome Regatta Party and The Awards Banquet. In winter, we gather at 10 am for a monthly Sunday brunch at The Hometown Buffet in Mentor.

     If you are a prospective new member to GRSC, we require that you be "sponsored" by a fellow member and a club officer. You must present your application at a GRSC board meeting which are held the 2nd Tuesday every month at G.R.Y.C. We extend an open invitation to anyone interested in joining GRSC to attend any social gathering or GRSC meeting or download the Membership Application.
