2022 CYC Race to Mackinac

 In a race that will be remembered as “one for the books,” the 113th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac presented by Wintrust. While this year’s race didn’t break any official records other than the number of Lake Michigan lightning strikes during Saturday night’s storms and the number of waves over the bow on Sunday night it was one of the overall fastest races in recent years. In total, out of the 244 registered, 29 boats retired or chose to withdraw, reasons ranging from the impending weather, shredded sails, equipment failures and minor injuries. The J105 teams proved to be up for the challenge with the fleet all scoring in the top half of the Mackinac Division. Sealark, Flying Pig, & Kinship finished 5th, 8th, & 12th in the overall Division.

This was Sealark’s second consecutive first place finish and we want to give Kinship a shout out for doing so well in their inaugural Mac. Congratulations to all the finishers this was a tough one. And as always happens after a shower and the Mac Party we all agreed: Can’t wait till next year!
