Ed was a proud Old Goat who taught his entire family to race and has been an inspiration to all!

Falcon was the 2005, 2006, 2011 & 2012 J-35 North American Champion and has won its J-35/T-35 One Design Class in three Mac Races. Falcon's experienced crew has over 200 Bayview Mac Races between them.

This race will make Ed Bayer a Grand Ram (50th Mac), and mark John Bayer's 43th, Mike Welch's 34rd, Ron Rossio's 32st, and Fred Blackmer's 26th! So 5 of Falcon's 10 crew this year are Old Goat's and another crew, Brian Beaudet, is knocking on the Old Goat door with 23 macs completed.

Falcon is proud to represent the Detroit Yacht Club.

History. Boats named "ROWDY" have been raced in the Bayview Mackinac Races for the past 39 consecutive years by Val A. Saph. The name "ROWDY" comes from a former Bayview boat; a 61' J-40 owned by former Bayview member Ril Wigle, and chartered by Val and other teenagers for 2-week trips on Lakes Huron & Michigan and Georgian Bay, in the late 1950's. That boat was noted for its leopard skin interior, wild parties and having come close to going over Niagra Falls until the anchor held when Ril took a wrong turn. It now resides in Europe after an extensive refit. The current Rowdy is a Thomas 35 raced in the Bayview Mackinac Race since 1990. It has taken first place in its class in 1991, 1993 and 2007. Most of the current crew have raced on Rowdy for many years. Former crew member Kent Herzer, who was lost off this boat on a return trip after a Mackinac race, is still sorely missed by everyone. ROWDY is proud to represent Port Huron Yacht Club, which has always warmly welcomed the Bayview/Mackinac racers to Port Huron.

Crew Members:

The 2018 BYC Mackinac Race presents a long awaited "reunion" opportunity for the storied Catalina 38 "STING", owner/Skipper Mike Bouckaert, and brothers Dave and Steve Lange. In the mid to late 80's, this group enjoyed great success on "STING" while crewing together for Dave and Steve's father- original "STING" owner Ken Lange on Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay. For thirteen years this team gained racing experience while sailing together aboard the "Lange" boats "EVADER", "PHANTOM", and "STING".

In a welcome twist of fate two years back Mike Bouckaert was able to purchase "STING" and return it to active sailing on Saginaw Bay. The time has come to once again commission this boat on the open lake in the BYC Mackinac Race. The 2018 BYC-Mac race will add to "STING'S" experience of several BYC-Mac races that have accumulated over a 20 year period starting in the 1990's.

Mike Bouckaert has 25+ years of active sailboat racing experience ranging from HobieCats to daysailers to 40'+ boats. This will be Mike's 6th BYC Mac race, and his first as owner/skipper of "STING". Mike sails "STING" out of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. Mike's son Dylan has taken an active interest in the sport and also joins the 2018 crew.

Brothers Dave and Steve Lange have a combined 46 years of active sailboat racing experience, ranging from Optimist Prams to Lightnings to 40' PHRF boats. Dave also has BYC-Mac experience and is currently the owner/skipper of the Tartan Ten "Mechanical Music" that races out of the Bay City Yacht Club. Dave's son Konnor entered the sport actively five years ago and will also crew on "STING"

Jonathan Benallack has been hooked on sailing since his dad brought home "...a new green and white Sunfish the summer he was 15...". Jon has a wealth of sailing experience on both inland lakes and Lake Michigan, recently focusing on the sporty Flying Juniors and Flying Scots. Jon is a welcome member to the "STING" crew.

The owner and crew of "STING" wish to extend a SIGNIFICANT Thank you to all the family and friends who have made this race possible....none of which would be possible without their help and support. Good Sailing!!!!!

This will be Trav’ler’s first Bayview Mackinac Race and the owner’s 15th, but first as skipper. Trav’ler has been in the family for 25+ years and has gradually transformed over many years from a pleasure cruiser to a competitive club racer at Port Huron Yacht Club. The boat takes is name from the combination of the owner’s son’s names, Travis and Tyler, who grew up learning to sail along with their Dad on the boat. Our crew is the owner’s sons, brothers and a longtime sailing friend with 33 BV Macs between us. We look forward to a safe and competitive race and the camaraderie and fun the race brings to those both on the water and shore.
