Leaving Green Bay was uneventful. We sailed up Green Bay and through the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal to Lake Michigan. We anchored in early evening about two miles out in the lake in position to start the last leg of the sailing race. We learned that evening that one of the other ships had grounded it’s self trying to anchor closer to shore. They had to have a tug come out and tow them off. The race started at 10 am and was 118 miles, with the finish line in the lake off of Racine, Wisconsin. I took quite a few pictures of ships starting the tall ship race. We did not do as well as we did in the Duluth to Whitefish Bay race on Lake Superior, where we came in first. Wind changes late in the race caused us to miss the 2 mile wide starting line. We had to tack several times to get into position. We won’t know who won though until we get to Chicago. After crossing the finish line the next day at 8pm or so we headed for Muskegon.
