Bayview Mackinac Race

July 18, 2015

Bayview Mackinac Race

The Bayview Mackinac Race is one of the longest freshwater races in the world with over two hundred boats entering the race each year. There have been at least six changes to the course throughout the race’s history. All of the race’s courses start in the waters of Lower Lake Huron, 4.5 miles north of the Blue Water Bridge near the American shoreline, sail the length of Lake Huron, and finish at Mackinac Island, Michigan. Currently, the Race features two courses, one Shore Course sailing up the Michigan shoreline, and a Cove Island Course that takes boats around a buoy off Cove Island in northeast Lake Huron. Both courses finish at Mackinac Island.

Since 2011 the main sponsor of the race has been Bell’s Brewery and the race has been designated the Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race. The Race has also amassed a strong following using technology and social networking; it can be followed virtually using Facebook, Twitter and its Race tracking interface.
