Falcon is owned by Ed (51 PH Macs) and John Bayer (44 PH Macs) All 4 Bayer children are involved. Mary Allen, the main trimmer, is Ed and John's sister and their other sister, Linda Barnes, is an active participant, though she choses not to race. They dedicate this and all future races to their Father Edwin A. Bayer Jr. who passed away several years ago at the age of 85. Ed was a proud Old Goat who taught his entire family to race and has been an inspiration to all!

Falcon was the 2005, 2006, 2011 & 2012 J-35 North American Champion and has won its J-35/T-35 One Design Class in three Mac Races. Falcon's experienced crew has over 200 Bayview Mac Races between them.

This race will mark Ed Bayer's (51th Mac, a Grand Ram), and mark John Bayer's 44th, Mike Welch's 35rd, Ron Rossio's 33rd! So 4 of Falcon's 10 crew this year are Old Goat's and another crew, Mary Allen, is knocking on the Old Goat door with 23 macs completed.

Falcon is proud to represent the Detroit Yacht Club.

Between us we have many first, second, and third place finishes as well as some overall wins. Manitou is an Algonquian Indian word meaning spirit. This spirit is seen as a (contactable) person as well as a concept. Everything has its own Manitou—every plant, every stone, even machines. This year we hope the spirit of Manitou brings us across the finish line in first place.

Perico (pronounced pay-reecoh, rolled r optional) is named after a famous Cuban donkey. Perico became a pet of the town of Santa Clara in the 30's and 40's on retirement from his earlier career pulling an ice cream cart. He spent his retirement years meandering his former ice cream route and graciously accepting offerings of food and beverage from the locals. He was particularly fond of beer and was well-know at many of the local taverns and well-liked by their purveyors and patrons. When he passed in 1947, his obituary was published in the New York Times and a statue in his honor was erected in the town plaza. Perico's spirit lives on in this racing yacht, which counts among her many successes the 2016 Chicago-Mackinac Cruising Division Overall championship. Perico hopes to to get to the island quickly in her first Bayview-Mac, where her crew will graciously accept any and all offerings of beer.

History. Boats named "ROWDY" have been raced in the Bayview Mackinac Races for the past 39 consecutive years by Val A. Saph. The name "ROWDY" comes from a former Bayview boat; a 61' J-40 owned by former BYC member Ril Wigle, and chartered by Val and other teenagers for 2-week trips on Lakes Huron & Michigan and Georgian Bay, in the late 1950's. That boat was noted for its leopard skin interior, wild parties and having come close to going over Niagara Falls until the anchor held when Ril took a wrong turn. It now resides in Europe after an extensive refit. The current Rowdy is a Thomas 35 raced in the Mackinac Race since 1990. It has taken first place in its class in 1991, 1993, 2007 and 2018. Most of the current crew have raced on Rowdy for many years. Former crew member Kent Herzer, who was lost off this boat on a return trip after a Mackinac race, is still sorely missed by everyone. ROWDY is proud to represent Port Huron Yacht Club, which has always warmly welcomed the Bayview/Mackinac racers to Port Huron.

Alissa and I met racing Sailboats and have raised two wonderful kids and two dogs all while continuing to race. Along the way we have met many outstanding people that enjoy our passion and have allowed us to race Mac’s with them. So for the first time we have entered our boat and have crewed it with friends and fellow club members. Although this is SOLSTICE first Mac Alissa and I have taken her in three Huron double handed challenge’s and are confident she will deliver all of us to the island with lots of good memories from this year’s race

The 2019 BYC Mackinac Race presents a mix of old and new but experienced crew for the storied Catalina 38 "STING", and owner/Skipper Mike Bouckaert, In the mid to late 80's, Mike and the previous owner with his son's Dave and Steve Lange along with his group enjoyed great success on "STING" while crewing together for Dave and Steve's father- original "STING" owner Ken Lange on Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay. For thirteen years this team gained racing experience while sailing together aboard the "Lange" boats "EVADER", "PHANTOM", and "STING".

In a welcome twist of fate two years back Mike Bouckaert was able to purchase "STING" and return it to active sailing on Saginaw Bay. The 2019 MAC again commissions this boat on the open lake in the BYC Mackinac Race. The 2018 BYC-Mac race added to "STING'S" experience of several BYC-Mac races that have accumulated over a 20 year period starting in the 1990's. The 2019 race will begin with a solid group of young College Level Sailors with experience on both Small and Big boat experience

Mike Bouckaert has 25+ years of active sailboat racing experience ranging from HobieCats to daysailers to 40'+ boats. This will be Mike's 7th BYC Mac race, and his second as owner/skipper of "STING". Mike sails "STING" out of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. Mike's son Dylan has taken an active interest in the sport and also joins the crew but will unable to sail in 2019 due to College obligations

Brothers Dave and Steve Lange have a combined 46 years of active sailboat racing experience, ranging from Optimist Prams to Lightnings to 40' PHRF boats. Dave also has BYC-Mac experience and is currently the owner/skipper of the Tartan Ten "Mechanical Music" that races out of the Bay City Yacht Club. Dave's son Konnor entered the sport actively five years ago and will also crew on for him this year on Mechanical Music thus requiring the new crew aboard STING

This year "STING" welcomes Tim Dickey and Miranda Madden both from the MSU sailing program and Jayson Miller from the UT sailing program.

The owner and crew of "STING" wish to extend a SIGNIFICANT Thank you to all the family and friends who have made this race possible....none of which would be possible without their help and support. Good Sailing!!!!!

“The Windhover” Complete Text To Christ our Lord

I caught this morning morning’s minion, king- dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing, As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of, the mastery of the thing!

Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!

No wonder of it: sheer plod makes plough down sillion Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear, Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion. Hopkins

His father still sails the Mac. He is keeping the family tradition going with gusto. Another crew member is a retired high school teacher whose students undoubtedly miss her daily. Four attorneys make the boat one in which the wind never dies.
