Lake Michigan Sailing dinghy race?

For years I've been tossing around the idea of trying to start a long distance dinghy race in lake Michigan. Was wondering if anyone in the area would be interested, say from Muskegon to south haven or something like that, it looks as if the longest one world wide currently is 40 miles. Obviously I am considering that safety would have to be the cornerstone and I would have to find some volunteer safety vessels. But I would love some thoughts, I'm thinking a pretty unrestricted race in terms of boat design and maybe a total of 4 categories, multihull 16 and under, multi hull 20 and under, and then roughly the same for mono hulls, something to that effect anyway. Would just love to hear some thoughts, thanks.
