About Manitou...

We have been racing Manitou in the Bayview Mackinac Race since 2009. The boat is owned by past Bayview Yacht Club Commodore John C. Burke. This will be his 45th Mackinac Race. We have a well seasoned crew with over 135 collective Mackinac Races between us. The crew is made up of family and close friends that have been sailing together for many years. Between us we have many first, second, and third place finishes as well as some overall wins. Manitou is an Algonquian Indian word meaning spirit. This spirit is seen as a (contactable) person as well as a concept. Everything has its own Manitou—every plant, every stone, even machines. Why not a boat. This year we hope the spirit of Manitou brings us across the finish line in first place.
