Crossing the finish line

Early this morning, the first of the boats began crossing the finish line at Mission Point on Mackinac Island in the Pure Michigan Bayview Mackinac Race.  We are proud to announce that Eagle One, the boat upon which our very own George Zimmermann was crewing, has crossed the finish line, and was the first to do so in their class and the fifth in their division!

You can track the remaining boats, and check out all the results exclusively on our site.

If you missed it, George provided audio updates throughout the course of the race.  You can listen to all of them here.

Congratulations to the entire crew of Eagle One, and to the crew members of all the participating boats!  Great job, and thank you for a great race!

Day Two of the Pure Michigan Bayview Mackinac Race

It’s the second day of the Pure Michigan Bayview Mackinac Race, and Pure Michigan’s own George Zimmermann is back with another update.  The racers had a good night – with the exception a brief squall that came through, the weather was fairly calm. 

This race comes with a lot of history – it started in 1925 with only 12 boats.  This year, there are over 200 racing their way north on Lake Huron to Mackinac Island.
