CB I too enjoyed the video and it is nice to see and hear comments about the great Lake Michigan and this race. Of course as a Lake Michigan sailor/boater I'm bias, but thanks.
As for the complainers, I counted many more sailboats in movie than I did bottles of champagne. Any world class sailing race has sponsors and without them these races wouldn't start.
Mackinac Island is a great destination and even better done by boat, hey it's no different than Catalina Island, Key West, etc. except there NO cars on Mackinac Island.
Another great sailing race on the other side of Michigan is the Port Huron to Mackinac race 290 miles and sponsored by breweries and rum manufacturers, maybe that's more for the salty dogs and grumpies instead of wine and champagne.
CB thanks for bringing this SAILING race to this sailing public, even tough most of us knew of this great race already but many never saw the beauty.
Wished I was on board when my current boat sailed the Chi-Mac under a different name in the past.
