Sail Away with flame this Summer: Mackinac Race 2010

Heating & Cooling and water sports may not seem to go together, but this summer, they do! FLAME Heating, Cooling & Electrical is a proud sponsor of two of Michigan’s favorite water races this summer, the Jarvis Restoration Gold Cup Hydroplane Races and the Pure Michigan Bayview Mackinac Sailboat Race.   Though the Gold Cup Races have already passed, with the Spirit of Qatar winning this 2010 Gold Cup, the Mackinac race is still on the horizon for FLAME.

The Port Huron to Mackinac race was started in 1925, and it runs from Port Huron, Michigan, just north of the Blue Water Bridge up to Mackinac Island. It is considered to be one of the longest races that take place in freshwater. This over 80-year tradition in Michigan is enjoyed by many, and boat sizes can range from smaller (under 30 feet) to much more prominent (80 feet). This year’s Mackinac race is starting on Saturday, July 17th. There are celebrations held at Port Huron the night before the start of the race and on Mackinac Island when all the boats arrive.  

If you’re free, join FLAME Heating, Cooling, and Electrical and many others at Pure Michigan’s Bayview Mackinac race this year! Contact FLAME if you have questions about our participation in the Mackinac race and the Gold Cup Races.
