The newest port-to-port Race on Lake Michigan has been scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2022. The Milwaukee Yacht Club and Waukegan Yacht Club have been working over the winter to set the schedule and get things into place for this year. The race which raced from Waukegan to Milwaukee in 2021, switches finish lines this year and will race from Milwaukee to Waukegan.
Twenty-three boats registered for the inaugural race and 22 boats started. The weather turned out beautifully and all the racers reported having fun during the 40-mile race, especially when the light winds switched around to the south and turned the contest into a spinnaker duel.
Sponsors are coming forward and 2022 looks like it will be a banner year for our second year.
