Tim Yanda, former EYC Commodore, will be sharing his experience of racing his sail boat, Viva La Vida in his first-ever Bell's Beer Bayview Mackinac Race this past July. This race is recognized as one of the most challenging and longest freshwater boat races in the world! The 95th annual race started Saturday, July 20 at noon on lower Lake Huron and served up a “little bit of everything” on its way to the finish line at Mackinac Island. 

Come hear Tim's stories as he had the time of his life! The reaching, running, beating, sailing overnight, sailing in storms, and probably a party here and there.

How does the team prepare? How do they handle the changing conditions? How do they handle mishaps? Tim will share with us the struggles and accomplishments of these physical and mental challenges.

The Bayview Mackinac race started in 1924 with just 12 boats. 2019 saw 220 boats registered, 198 on the starting line, 173 finishing, and 3500 attendees at their Island Awards Party!

Join us to hear Tim share his tale of how he and his team got from start to finish, and the adventures in between, on Tuesday November 5, 2019. All are welcome!

2019 was the 9th year that Bell's Beer has been the title sponsor for the Bayview Mackinac Race. Please join us during our meeting for Bell's Beer drink specials!


Edgewater Yacht Club, a members-only club, graciously hosts our organization. Our meetings and classes are held in the indoor "patio" dining area closest to the water.

NCWSA members, who are not also EYC members, are considered guests and will be asked to park outside the fence either across from the guard station or along the fence. As a guest you can enjoy the dining and bar amenities, however, please take note that EYC only accepts credit/debit cards. Cash is not accepted.

For NCWSA members, during our meetings and classes, anyone who wants to order food or drinks must order from within the patio with the staff servicing the patio only. Drink orders will only be taken at the patio bar and food orders will only be taken by staff located by the popcorn maker.
