Hundreds of sailors expected in Port during 30th Clipper Cup race Aug. 12 PDF Print E-mail

The 30th annual Clipper Cup race across Lake Michigan is expected to bring hundreds of sailors to Port Washington on Friday, Aug. 12.

“This is the biggest race that finishes in Port,” David Kasun, Port Washington Yacht Club fleet captain, said.

“If 60 boats enter this race, that’s about 300 people who will be coming to Port. That’s a huge group of sailors.”

Crews will sail 77 miles from Muskegon, Mich., to Port. 

Organized by the Port Washington and Muskegon yacht clubs, the Clipper Cup began in June 1987, and at that time was sailed from Port Washington to Muskegon.

The course was eventually reversed, and in 1997, under the leadership of the late Bert Smith and the Port Washington Yacht Club, the race was moved to August to take advantage of better weather. 

The Clipper Cup was only cancelled once, in 2012, because of dangerous lake conditions.

Crews competing in this year’s race are expected to remain in Port at least through Saturday, Aug. 13, when the Port Washington Yacht Club will host an awards banquet.
