This will be Legacy's first race to the island. Our crew consists of 3 generations of Sorbie's; Kate (grand daughter), Scott (son) and Jim (father). This year will be Kate's first race. Sailing along side the Sorbie family will be close friends, Steve, Katy and Ryan. All excellent sailors with lots of experience.

We'd like to wish the best of luck to all our competitors. Stay safe and see you on the island!

Also, huge shout out to Jim for agreeing to join us on this adventure. Doing this race in a sub-thirty foot boat at the age of 71 is bad ass. I hope he will forgive us for pressuring him to do it.

We have a well seasoned crew with over 130 collective Mackinac Races between us. The crew is made up of family and close freinds that have been sailing together for many years. 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.

Zubenelgenubi is one of the original Cal-30s built by Jensen Marine. The boat was originally owned by Kurt Keydel, Woody Warrick, and John Martin and named Trigon. When Woody Warrick took over ownership in 1982 he changed the name to Zubenelgenubi, a third - order double navigational star. That was also the year that it won its class and its division in the Mackinac race. The boat is now owned by Kurt Keydel's sons Eric and Conrad.
