PHILOSOPHY OF THE CHALLENGE
The Huron Challenge is an opportunity to
participate in a friendly race - challenge for
double handed boats (those sailed with two
persons on board) and to rendezvous in scenic
Rogers City in northern Michigan.
Its aim is to encourage the development of safe
and swift offshore passage-making capability
with limited crew. Its a great way to get your
boat north in the company of others. Awards for
all Finishers plus special awards in class.
