Sailing the Chesapeake you will be used to the depth. Lake Huron is great sailing grounds.
So, I assume that you are referring to Auburn Hills and not Auburn. Auburn is between Bay City and Midland, Auburn Hills near Pontiac. You would go up two lanes to Caseville from Auburn Hills and it is about 100 miles or two hours. Not much farther than Bay City, and in Bay City you will have to motor out quite a ways to get good sailing.
If you want to be able to get to the boat quicker then Port Huron and Sarnia could be your answer. Sarnia would mean crossing into Canada, but not really a big issue as long as you have the proper documentation. The last I heard they had slips available. Again, going north, you have great cruising grounds and can enjoy the party for Bayview Yacht Clubs race to Mackinac.
Lots of places on Lake Ste. Claire as well.
