For the 2020 edition of the Bayview Mackinac Race, the fleet endured many hours of beating upwind to get to Mackinac Island. Due to Canadian maritime restrictions over the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s course went north and finished. The only obstacles were having to leave Thunder Bay Island and Bois Blanc Island to port before crossing the virtual GPS finish line between the lighthouse and Mackinac Island. Despite the challenging weather conditions Saturday night and Sunday, most teams completed the entire race. This year, the race featured a “Shore Course- Sport Boat” division. Scott Sorbie’s J/88 LEGACY garnered some silverware in their first outing of the year to take the bronze in Class L Racing division. For more Bayview Mackinac Race sailing information, visit
