No problem, hope my old info is still good.
Not sure if the yacht clubs move the buoys or they stay where they are every year.
Hope you find some Perch!

These will get you near buoys. Yacht club racing commodore said they vary a bit every year because different people put them out but are usually pretty close.

A RACE BUOY A 43°43.845' -83°50.275' Orange Pipe Buoy
B RACE BUOY B 43°43.482' -83°49.060' Orange Pipe Buoy
C RACE BUOY C 43°42.600' -83°48.552' Orange Pipe Buoy
D RACE BUOY D 43°41.718' -83°49.060' Orange Pipe Buoy
E RACE BUOY E 43°41.355' -83°50.275' Orange Pipe Buoy
F RACE BUOY F 43°41.718' -83°51.490' Orange Pipe Buoy
G RACE BUOY G 43°42.600' -83°51.997' Orange Pipe Buoy
H RACE BUOY H 43°43.482' -83°51.490' Orange Pipe Buoy
S RACE BUOY S 43°42.600' -83°50.275' Orange Pipe Buoy

A is farthest out, B thru H go clockwise from there. C and D are near the channel. S is in the middle...actually at the end of the original channel.

Good luck
