Sun, 13 Jul 2014 23:46:05 GMT — The lead boat has finished the 90th annual Port Huron to Mackinac Island race. The website of the Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit shows that Windquest was across the finish line in northern Lake Huron at 6:15 p.m. Sunday. Il Mostro was about 1.3 nautical miles out at 6:30 p.m. Conditions were near perfect Saturday as more than 200 sailboats set off just north are off from near the Blue Water Bridge at Port Huron. Bell's Brewery sponsors the race. Race chairman Art LeVasseur says winds were ideal for the racers. The winners are based on a handicapping system that considers each boat's ability. There are two courses, one called the Cove Island and the other called the Shore Course.
