Bernida: A Michigan Sailing Legend

by Al Declercq and Tom Ervin with Gloria Whelan

In 1925 a sailboat named Bernida wins the very first Port Huron to Mackinac Island Race. She wins again in 1927 but when the race’s rules change, she is no longer allowed to compete. Years go by while she is left neglected, moving from owner to owner. But in 2012, after a miraculous restoration and with new owners who believe in her, Bernida is once again entered in the Mackinac Race and wins.
