Crew Members:

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.
