Bright and early last Saturday morning, I snapped the first few yachts that I saw coming under the bridge from Chicago. This was nearing the finish line for the 101 st Chicago to Mackinac Island Yacht race.
Last year I commented on the fact that I was disappointed the sails of the yachts were all in beige…nothing has changed. I saw only one red sail. To me, the colorful sails are stunning next to the beautiful blue water. I think I would rather have a colorful sail if I were sailing the big lakes (NOT VERY LIKELY!) because if anything should happen, it would be easier to spot a bright red sail in the water than it would to spot a beige sail. However, beige or red sails, I still enjoy the site of these yachts coming under the Mighty Mac.
