The annual race, tracked and hosted by the Bayview Yacht Club, draws sailors from across the country.
Reader Joan Watton photographed the start of the race Saturday and shared some of her photos with Patch. The complete album of photos are available for purchase through her website.
According to the Yellow Brick tracking information on Bayview's website, most of the racers are still clustered together near Pointe Clark in Canada late Saturday.
In an email, Watton said there is not much wind, which is similar to last year's sailing conditions. Included in her photographs is the historical boat that is being sailed again this year named the Bernida. It was the first boat to win the Bayview Port Huron Mackinac Race in 1925.
Last year, Grosse Pointe Park resident, Al Declercq, sailed the historical boat after it had been restored.
