Tickets for the return bus from Mackinac after the race are now available for purchase. The Chicago Yacht Club has partnered with Windy City Transportation to transport weary sailors from Mackinaw City to Chicago after the race and festivities. The motor coaches are comfortable, air conditioned and stocked with a supply of refreshments for your trip back to Chicago. All coaches will return to the Chicago Yacht Club's Monroe Station only. There are no coaches returning to Belmont Station. There will be one shuttle going to Belmont.
On Wednesday, July 17, four buses will depart from the Star Line dock in Mackinaw City at 10 a.m. with a later bus departing from the same locale at 2 p.m. This provides you an option to enjoy part of the day on the Island before heading home.
We will note your requested bus time and reconfirm with you the bus you have reserved before the race. Bus tickets are not transferable and you will be assigned a seat on a specific bus. If booked for the early bus, you will not be able to change and opt to take the later one, or vice versa. There are no refunds, so if your plans change find a replacement and let us know.
