107th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac
I joined the crew of Bill Derrah's Loki for my first Chicago-Mackinac race, and in spite of a string of unfortunate and unpredictable events, we all ended up smiling at the post-race party.
Everybody agreed it was the worst Chi-Mac in 50 years -- 99 boats withdrew (including us, eventually). Maybe next year we'll make it to the finish line!
See y'all at the August meeting, when we'll continue our summer series of sailing tips and nudges for our new sailors.
Loci’s crew on Tuesday, after the Mac at the Mt, Gay Rum Party for Competitors. (L to R): Don Glasell, Bill Derrah (Loci owner/skipper), Leo Burns, Steve Lambert, Jonathon Levine, John Morris, Tom Lambert -- Don Glasell and Bill Derrah have been NWSA speakers recently.
