450 Mile Upwind tour of Lake Michigan and Huron on Genuine Risk

John VanWylen overtakes a Laker aboard Genuine Risk

Several years worth of Kings Pointers joined up in Sarnia, Ont last weekend to take the 90' Genuine Risk from her storage berth to Holland, MI in preperation for the Chicago to Mackinac Race. Kings Pointers aboard included John VanWylen '07, Dan Miller '06, Pat Showell '09, Chris Gasiorek '95, and Offshore Coach Ralf Steitz. The trip was upwind for all but a short portion in the Straits of Mackinac, and when cracked off a bit GR quickly got up over 15 knots with small delivery sails.
