    Advice on flying chute

    Chicago Mac Weather ~ It’s to Early Edition

    I like the 2s idea.  Models have condensed but the inside models seem to call a longer race.  Makes it an easy armchair decision.   Will you be in the suck of death or barrelling along with your long term strategy, that shows over time wins races.

    J105 square top main

    Give people time.  There will be an overall decrease in participation for the Race to Mackinac 2021.  Whether you missed it or always race it in the coming years new AIS requirements really start puttin the burden on boat ownership and safety gear.  Gets a bit much but it all adds up...for...

    Chicago Area III

    It's not racing but we plan on taking that week and sailing to Beaver, Leland, and maybe another port during that race week.  We have the time off and getting slips at most marinas has not been an issue.  Could not imagine racing to Mackinac and NOT being able to dock, for at least one night. ...
