Chicago to Michigan City Race

The annual summer dash across the bottom of Lake Michigan from Chicago, IL to Michigan City, IN was a relatively light affair for the fleet of 80 boats. The Columbia Yacht Club RC/PRO team started the fleet on Friday, July 8 evening, and then it was a 32.0nm dash to the Michigan City breakwater finish line. Teams took over eight hours, averaging of 4.0 knots. Winning the 11-boat PHRF 4 Division and the J/105 one-design fleet was Peter Schwarzbach's PHANTOM. Taking the silver in both classes was Josh & Laura Lutton's KINSHIP. Then, Branwell Lepp's IT WASN'T ME took fifth in handicap and third in J/105 one-design.
