7.14.14: Windquest 1st finisher to Mackinac Island
MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — More than 100 sailboats have finished the 90th annual Port Huron to Mackinac Island race.
The website of the Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit shows more than 25 boats across the finish line as of Monday morning on the Cove Island course and more than 80 boats finishing the Shore Course.
Windquest was across the finish in northern Lake Huron at 6:15 p.m. Sunday and Il Mostro was in by 7:15 p.m.
Conditions were near perfect Saturday as more than 200 sailboats set off just north of the Blue Water Bridge at Port Huron. The winners are based on a handicapping system that considers each boat’s ability.
