I just heard on the news that the course is 333 miles and it's the oldest fresh water race on record. The racers will not stop until they get to Mackinac Island. Ever been there? Here's a link to it, check it out (it was the featured in the movie, Somewhere in Time, with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves). Mackinac Island.

I was sitting on my front porch this evening when I noticed what a beautiful sunset we were having. I ran into the house and told hubby I had to rush to the beach to try to get the sun setting over the lake and perhaps I would see some of the sailboats racing by.
I'm not familiar with the race since I just heard about it yesterday, but here is the link to their website where you can learn all about it and perhaps, maybe someday, participate in it. :) Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac
