Sailors from 15 different U.S. states as well as Ontario, Switzerland, and as far off as Hong Kong, are preparing for the race of a lifetime โ€“ the 333 mile Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Wintrust.

The Mac, as it is affectionately known, kicks off Saturday, July 13, 2019 with 3,000 sailors competing in this world-class sporting event. Although The Mac remains primarily an amateur event, this race has a proven track record of attracting some of the finest sailing talent in the sport.

The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac is the longest, annual freshwater sailing race in the world. It takes place on Lake Michigan.

For those of you making boat deliveries home, please note: Presque State Harbor does not have any fuel. They are currently putting in new tanks, and their store is also closed. If anyone is heading to Port Huron and needs fuel they should stop at Rogers City Marina.

Have a safe trip home!
