I am hoping to do Port Huron mac race in 2015, or whenever I am ready. I will be going to a skippers meeting, or whatever else I can do, to prepare later this year but untill then I was just looking for advice, pointers, etc... My main question is how much it costs to do the race. Like a ballpark total for slips, race entry fee, lifeboat rental, food, etc... Last time I did the race as crew and we all(as far as I know) pitched in $200 and the skipper told me he spent alot more than that. Well thats $1400 just from us alone. Just wondering if I can afford to even think about doing the race. I'm a low budget sailor at the moment. Construction in MI sucks at the moment.
