The Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race is America’s greatest and longest-consecutively held freshwater sailing competition!

The race, which starts on lower Lake Huron and finishes at Mackinac Island to the north, offers sailors a choice of two courses: one the length of 259 nautical miles (the Cove Island Course) for larger boats and the other of 204 nm (the Shore Course).

Bayview Yacht Club and the Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race have for many years worked with the non-profit organization Set Sail for Autism to create special sailing events and opportunities for autistic children and young adults. As well, their partnership with the non-profit Alliance for the Great Lakes supports that organization’s efforts to protect the lakes now and in the future.

Bayview Yacht Club, founded in 1915, is widely regarded as the premier sailing club in Michigan and the Midwest. Located on the Detroit River near the mouth of Lake St. Clair, it has been hosting the Bayview Mackinac Race since 1925 and has more than 1,000 members.
