Chicago Mackinac 2012 - Pushed through to the finish

A warm front moved north across Lake Michigan late Sunday night, bringing with it fresh breeze and rejuvenating the Race to Mackinac sailors after they spent much of yesterday in the doldrums along the Manitou Passage.

This building southwesterly breeze pushed the already compacted fleet in the 104th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Veuve Clicquot, through to the finish.

According to Principal Race Officer Janet Crabb, the Mac race committee finished approximately 75 percent of the 326-boat fleet within 12 hours. The close finishes reminded her of the Parade of Boats check-in at the race start in Chicago. 'But today instead of the metropolitan cityscape, our finishing boats were painted against the Mackinac Bridge. Both locations are such incredible assets to our race.'

The breeze carried the Turbos, Sections 1-3, Farr 40s, Multihulls, and early finishers in Sections 4 and 5 to cross the finish line before 7 a.m. CDT. World-renowned sailor Ken Read, who sailed with Peter Thornton on il Mostro, the Volvo 70 that Read skippered in the 2008-2009 Volvo Ocean Race, admitted he was a bit jealous of the boats flying under the Mackinac Bridge this morning. 'That is what I call ‘brochure-perfect’ racing,' said Read.

By mid-morning, on-the-water reports indicated 20-25 knots, ensuring some wild rides and smiling faces for those in the 25-strong Tartan 10 fleet, the multiple J boat and Beneteau fleets, as well as Sections 6 – 8.

Lou Sandoval, chairman for this year’s Race to Mackinac, is ecstatic with how the 104th turned out. 'Our entire committee worked very hard to ensure a safe, fun race,' he said. 'I’d like to thank everyone for their dedication and commitment, and especially thank the racers for joining us year after year.'
