Hi friends and family!!
In just a bit under 72 hours, Maskwa will be making her annual journey north on Lake Michigan, past her namesake ancestors, and up to the island.
But this year it will be different. This year, we will be sailing right on past Mackinac Island, and continue down Lake Huron to Port Huron, Michigan, in an race called the Super Mac.
That's right, the Chicago Mac is not long enough for us this year, so we will nearly double the distance. The Super Mac has only been run a few times, and we are selecting this season for a fantastic congruence of events--
Chicago to Mackinac to Port Huron "Super Mac" Race. (568 statute miles)
Port Huron to Mackinac Race (235 statute miles)
Harbor Springs, Michigan, Ugotta Regatta
Trans Superior Regatta. (388 statute miles)
We have quite a bit over 1000 miles of racing starting in 3 days.
You can track us on the Chicago Mackinac race here, or click the link below.
You can also download the YB Racetracker app for your smartphone, and the Chicago-Mackinac race is free, I am not yet sure about how they will handle the Super Mac nor the Port Huron. So far the Trans Superior does not have information on race tracking.
See you on the water!!!!
