Lightning, Strong Winds Hit Chicago Mackinac Race

In a race that will be remembered as "one for the books," the 113th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac presented by Wintrust is a wrap after staggered starts on July 22 and 23 in Chicago, IL. And while this year’s 289 nm race didn’t break any official records other than the number of Lake Michigan lightning strikes late on July 23, it was one of the overall fastest races in recent years. Congratulations to the top participants in the J/105 section: Clark Pellett’s Sealark, Michael Sheppard’s Flying Pig and Josh & Laura Lutton’s Kinship.
