Regatta Is This Saturday

The 18th Annual Horns Bar Labor Day Regatta will be Saturday, September 1. Prior to the race, there will be a skippers’ meeting at 11 a.m. at the Mackinac Island Yacht Club. All sailboats are welcome to participate, and the race will be free to enter.

The race will begin at 12:10 p.m., with a first warning at noon and a second warning at 12:05 p.m., between the #2 buoy and the committee boat, both of which are located off the east breakwall. The course will take vessels around the Island, beginning with the east shore, and will finish off at the mouth of Mackinac Island Harbor. An awards ceremony and celebration will immediately follow the race at the yacht club.

Contestants who cannot make the skippers’ meeting are welcome to join the other racers on the water before the start, and may enter the race by contacting the committee boat via radio on channel 69.

Participants needing more specific information can contact either the Mackinac Island Yacht Club at 847-3363 or race coordinator David Rowe at (810) 516-5052.
