OABI stands for Once Around Belle Isle, a 7-mile paddle race around Belle Isle in the shared waters of Windsor and Detroit. What started as a clandestine meet-up of 25 paddlers, OABI has evolved into a full-out water sport extravaganza. Paddlers, kayakers, and rowers of all levels can race, take classes, and shop from a number of paddle vendors and outfitters. Live surf-rock, craft beer, food trucks, and beach games will entertain the land dwellers.

Price: $10 - $70
