2023 Bayview Mackinac Race Safety Equipment Requirements
The 2023 Bayview Mackinac Race Safety Equipment Requirements (SERs) have been posted on the website. Please review the complete document before determining that you have met the requirements. A list of the changes from the 2022 Bayview Mackinac Race SERs is included in the document. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Charlie Trost at .

Mackinac Island Docking
For fairness to all competitors, docking will be assigned in order of paid registration in the race. We may be unable to accommodate docking for all competitors at Mackinac Island. An entry in the race does NOT guarantee a dock on Mackinac Island. Docking on Mackinac Island will be at one of two locations:

1) Mackinac Island State Harbor (slips or rafted)
2) Arnold Freight/Coal Dock (broadside or rafted)

2024 Race Pre-registration - 100th Mackinac Race
Pre-registration for the 2024 Bayview Mackinac Race will end on June 1, 2023.

2023 Registration
If you are experiencing any issues with registration, please get in touch with Melissa at . You will be shown as registered for the 2023 race once your entry fee is paid.

A special thanks to the Bayview Mackinac Race Foundation, Aperol, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Faygo, Aitken-Ormond Insurance, Mission Point Resort, Frankenmuth Insurance, MicroCODE, and Marx Layne; without their support, we could not have a regatta of this caliber. We hope you patronize their products or services!

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
