History

Crystal Sailing Club was conceived at an informal meeting of interested sailors at the Crystal Township Hall, August 12,1961, in response to a notice mailed to all known sailors and sailboat owners by Vince Wright and Dr. Tom Baker, who had taken an informal census of all sailboats they could find around the lake. Enough interest was expressed to try an informal series of races during the fall of that year. Some of the attempts at handicapping the mixed fleet were crude, but we were learning and having a lot of fun. So, on Sunday, November 19, 1961, a group met in Lansing to sign the Articles of Incorporation, to get our baby officially born. All who signed up prior to May 5, 1962 were designated as Charter Members.
