Well race fans....the 2018 Race to Mackinac is upon us.
Seven salty sailors and one young pup will traverse the wide open waters of Lake Michigan on the mighty Vytis in search of adventure, camaraderie and victory.
While the forecast looks a bit ominous we will persevere to the finish god willing; and if the stars align, another flag for our string and a free bottle of rum for our efforts! Wish us luck!
Should you wish to track us in real time you have two options.

Of special note, Julyte Petkus, will be participating in her first Mac Race. Needless to say, if we need to shed weight in light winds, she will be the first to go! Honestly, wish her luck; she will need it! The first 24 hours will baptize her with fire!
Good luck to everyone participating. Godspeed.
