NICHOLSON58 is on a distinguished road
We sailed in the Chicago Mac in 1981 - the year Dennis C admitted it to be a humbling experience. We were on a Heritage One-Ton with a 58 foot mast. There was a fleet-mate a couple of wave crests to our stbd. On the troughs, we could not see his mast. Winds were 70 knots for over 7 hours and waves were mamoth. Really glad when we docked in Mackinaw.
