As we gear up for the next sailing season, the 100th Bayview Mackinac is right around the corner. Mark your calendar for July 20, 2024. There has been long anticipation for the 100th race from many sailors near and far. As a result, we will open pre-registration for the 100th Mackinac race on the official race website (www.bycmack.com) on Saturday, February 18, 2023. By pre-registering, you will be allowed to register for the race a week before the race registration is open to those who have not yet signed up. Registration fees for the 2024 race will be charged when you register for the race in early October. The goal is to secure spots for those regular participants and attract new out-of-town boats. We expect a large fleet for the 2024 race, and dockage will be assigned in order of paid registration.
To pre-register, go to the official race website, www.bycmack.com:
