The 2010 US-IRC Great Lakes Championships for the second consecutive year will be sailed in lower Lake Huron in the shadow of two great sailing communities; Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan. The Port Huron Yacht Club is looking forward to hosting this much anticipated event just one week before the Bayview Port Huron to Mackinac Island Sailboat Race is scheduled to set sail.
The Blue Water Area provides a beautiful and challenging setting for the events race course. Mid July on Lake Huron brings uncertain wind conditions which will keep skippers and their tacticians busy trying to plan for the next shift. Although predominate wind direction would call for southerly winds this time of year all it takes is a cold front to come through the area to make for some entertaining racing with strong northerly winds and high seas.
Racing conditions were near perfect for the 2009 US-IRC Great Lakes Championships. Warm southerly breezes met the three classes of boats the entire weekend as a close an intense battle in sued between the yachts to establish who would be the first ever US-IRC Great Lakes Champion.
