First Trans Superior Singlehanded Challenge

  #

Entries for the first Trans Superior Singlehanded Division are now being accepted for the August 6, 2005 Trans Superior International Yacht Race.

Since 1969 the Lake Superior Yachting association has held the Trans-Superior International Race every other year following the Chicago to Mackinac Island and the Port Huron to Mackinac Island races that are held in July. This 380 mile race starting in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada clears the northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula and finishes in Duluth, Minnesota, USA, fully crossing Lake Superior from East to West.

Lake Superior is not an ordinary body of water. With depths of over one quarter of a mile it contains 10% of the world's fresh water, enough to cover both North and South America under one foot of water or swallow up all the other Great Lakes with room for another three Lake Erie's. Water temperature at the surface can reach 60 to 75 degrees in the summer but the true deep lake temperature is 40 degrees which comes in to play when the wind kicks up.
