Light Trans-Superior Race

The annual 326.0nm Trans-Superior Race, organized and hosted by Duluth Yacht Club in MN, is one of the most challenging of the four major Great Lakes offshore races. The fleet starts at the eastern end of the deepest, coldest lake—Sault Ste. Marie, MI—then they all head west to finish at the westernmost harbor of Duluth, MN. For this year's competitors, it was a near "glass-out" with the clouds mirrored in the perfectly flat lake. Michael Hettel's J/105 GLOBAL NOMADS won the six-boat PHRF B division by nearly 2 hours corrected time. For more Trans-Superior Race information, visit
