Queen's Cup - The 'Badger' operational for 2013

by South Shore Yacht Club on 19 Jun 2013
. .
This year the 'Badger' will be carrying passengers, cars, trucks and cargo between Manitowoc, WI and Ludington, MI. The ship will complete two round trip passages per day. Queen’s Cup Racers should give her a wide berth as she enters the Ludington Harbor between 5:30-6:00A.M. The Queen’s Cup Finish Line is about a mile away and isn’t in the path of 'Badger'.

A conflict could occur as yachts are traveling to the harbor after the race. In all cases the 'Badger' has the right of way. The Coast Guard and Sherriff boats will be patrolling the harbor area to ensure a safe passage for all.

Ludington to Welcome Racers

The City of Ludington is getting ready to welcome the 2013 75th Queen’s Cup Racers. They will have a weeklong celebration with Marina and Hotel discounts for any racers that might want to stay and enjoy the festivities. The 'Badger' is the perfect ship to transfer crew and families between Manitowoc, WI and Ludington, MI for those that want continue sailing either North or South on Lake Michigan. Have your family drive to Manitowoc, leave your car in the lot and then take the 'Badger' to Ludington. Your crew can take the 'Badger' to Manitowoc and drive your car back. There are not too many racing destinations that offer this form of transportation.

New Safety Requirements for the 2013 Queen’s Cup Race

Brian Adams has worked on a set of new safety requirements for the 2013 race. They include mandatory 'man over board drill' and a safety checklist of required items that certify compliance with a Modified Category 3 Requirements. A person-in-charge will sign off that these items are available for each yacht. The Organizing Authority may inspect the yachts on the finish side for compliance of the list. Each skipper will certify that there yacht has completed a successful man overboard drill with at least two of the crew on board. Please review the form. You will receive one with the Notice of Race. We want to thank Brian for the fine job that he is doing.
