Race a Sailboat to Mackinac Island
Join in the fun of sailboat racing to Mackinac Island. In July, more than 350 sailboats depart from the Chicago Lighthouse near Navy Pier for the 289-nautical-mile trip to Michigan’s car-free Mackinac Island. This race is the world’s oldest annual freshwater distance race. Or you can charter a world class yacht and enjoy the breathtaking scenery when you sail to Mackinac Island, one of the most beautiful spots in the world.
