Mackinac Race 2014

Well it’s that time of year again…  Racing across lake Huron in the 2014 Bell’s Beer Mackinac Race.. It runs from the base of Lake Huron..  across her (200 miles) to a small island called Mackinac.  

We have a new race boat this year… called White River
For you racing people, It’s a 41’ CnC with a few new tricks on her..   Hydraulic boom vang, and back stay..   
We don’t expect to place too well, as the boat only arrived last week and we don’t have proper racing sails yet..  but should be a lot of fun…
There will be 9 crew, including all from last year and a special guest from the Islands..

The crew has been working very hard to get ready for the race..  Installing tons of electronics, safety gear, lighting, etc..  
We’ve only had one training session out in the lake, but we were able to fly the spinnaker through multiple gybes without losing anyone overboard 🙂

You can watch our progress live on the website… its an app called yellow brick
