The Society of Mackinac Island Old Goats, Detroit was formed in the 1950’s to recognize sailors who had completed twenty-five or more Bayview Mackinac Races.
Completing 25 races to Mackinac Island is a significant accomplishment and Old Goats are honored to be listed among other sailors that have attained this status. The evening is devoted to significant, funny or embarrassing Mackinac stories, as well as accomplishments, and contributions to the sailing community. This year PC DaleMacPherson became an Old Goat while helming and crewing on Blitz, who came in 2nd in class. The event will be held on Friday, April 26 at Bayview Yacht Club. For tickets, contact Ray Adams at - email@example.com.
Our club awards a perpetual trophy to the boat which logs the most miles on the water annually. The CSYC Logged Mileage Trophy is in honor of Commodore Charlie Todd and Barb Schmid. They spent 11 years on Sayonara traveling down the eastern shore of the US and venturing on to Europe. They traversed to 17 countries and logged over 25,000 miles. This trophy is a commendable tribute to their adventure and we proudly placed their names on it.
The Logged Mileage Trophy winners for 2018 are Grace Pytell and Emily Gazalle. “Elpis" is
owned by Mark Pytell and his wife Ann. Mark proudly accepted the award on behalf of Grace and Emily, at the Dec Crescent Membership Meeting. Grace and Emily left on Sept 14th on the family boat, a 1983 Columbia 29 and have logged over 6,000 miles on their Great Loop adventure.
We wish Grace and Emily a rewarding and memorable adventure – best of luck girls!
