Racing in the Bacardi Bayview Mackinac has never been easier


In 1915 Bayview Yacht Club was formed for the advancement of yachting. This year, sponsors, vendors, Baywiew members and the race committee are all pitching in to make participating in the race as painless as reasonably possible. The following is a list of changes and what they mean to you.

1) Mission Point has offered to reduce the minimum stay from 3 days to 2 days.

2) Mike's Marine, Thomas Hardware, and West Marine are offering 20% off on all required safety equipment.

3) The race committee is taking a more practical approach to the safety requirements for the Shore Course by allowing "old style" life rafts.

4) Our chief sponsor, Bacardi, has offered to pay $50.00 towards the entry fee for any boat racing for the first time.

5) The skipper package will include a convenient one-page safety check off list.

6)Several BYC members, each with at least 10 years Mackinac racing experience, have volunteered to crew on boats that are racing for the first time. If this is of interest to you please contact the club.

More news on this year's event coming soon. So come on out and join us for the race.
