Once Around Belle Isle

Saturday, August 8th, 11 am – 8 pm

Belle Isle State Park, Detroit, MI

Chateau Grand Traverse is proud to be the exclusive wine sponsor of Once Around Belle Isle, a 7-mile paddle race around Belle Isle in the international waters of Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, MI.  What started as an underground race in 2012 with 25 Detroit/Windsor paddlers has evolved into a Midwest paddle destination and the premier beach party in Detroit. CGT will be pouring four wines at the all-day event, which is family friendly and welcoming for any level of outdoor enthusiast!

With an expanded program in 2014, OABI appealed to not only serious stand-up paddlers, but also kayakers, rowers, and those who are completely new to paddling. By combining a newbie-friendly paddlerama with classes and demos, live music, craft beer, food trucks, and a wide variety of paddle vendors, OABI is a festive and welcoming environment that celebrates Detroit’s rightful place as one of the world’s primary centers of water sports and recreation.
