Mackinac is the finish line for two races: Chicago to Mackinac and Port Huron to Mackinac. There's always much hustle and bustle after the finish line, flags fluttering, sails being hauled in and stowed away and excited sailors... But they have to finish first and last night was dead calm, so still you can see reflections of the sails. There weren't any waves of water to be seen, but the waves of frustration could certainly be felt, with the finish line in view and no way to reach it!

During the night, the wind came up and everyone eventually made it in, accompanied by the traditional cannon blast as they crossed the finish line. They all find their place at the dock and the party begins!
