“CYC’s Race to Mackinac remains the single most important focus for many Lake Michigan Sailors. Not only does the race end in a truly beautiful and fun spot, but it offers uniquely different and challenging conditions along the way – from excruciatingly slow drifting to exhilarating summer thunder storms, to upwind bashing.”
