Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family. In 2020, Tor and Laurie Hough purchased Ohana (Ex-Equation). While Tor has sailed for decades on boats owned by others, 2020 was the family’s first foray into ownership. After a bit of scrambling in the early summer, Ohana’s crew shook out to be a mix of the Equation sailors alongside the Hough family and a handful of Tor’s former shipmates.

Given the pandemic, the 2020 season was different. The opportunities to compete and socialize were fewer and intentionally smaller. Still, Ohana managed to establish a core crew and capture a third in class and third overall in the Bayview Mackinac Race. In 2021, Ohana seeks to extend its family and enjoy its company while competing in the CYC Race to Mackinac, the Bayview Mackinac Race, the Ugotta Regatta, and other Detroit-area regattas.

History. Boats named "ROWDY" have been raced in the Bayview Mackinac Races for the past 39 consecutive years by Val A. Saph. The name "ROWDY" comes from a former Bayview boat; a 61' J-40 owned by former BYC member Ril Wigle, and chartered by Val and other teenagers for 2-week trips on Lakes Huron & Michigan and Georgian Bay, in the late 1950's. That boat was noted for its leopard skin interior, wild parties and having come close to going over Niagara Falls until the anchor held when Ril took a wrong turn. It now resides in Europe after an extensive refit. The current Rowdy is a Thomas 35 raced in the Mackinac Race since 1990. It has taken first place in its class in 1991, 1993, 2007 and 2018. Most of the current crew have raced on Rowdy for many years. Former crew member Kent Herzer, who was lost off this boat on a return trip after a Mackinac race, is still sorely missed by everyone. ROWDY is proud to represent Port Huron Yacht Club, which has always warmly welcomed the Bayview/Mackinac racers to Port Huron.

The 2021 BYC Mackinac Race presents a mix of old and new but experienced crew for the storied Catalina 38 "STING", and owner/Skipper Mike Bouckaert, In the mid to late 80's, Mike and the previous owner with his son's Dave and Steve Lange along with his group enjoyed great success on "STING" while crewing together for Dave and Steve's father- original "STING" owner Ken Lange on Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay. For thirteen years this team gained racing experience while sailing together aboard the "Lange" boats "EVADER", "PHANTOM", and "STING".

In a welcome twist of fate in the spring of 2015 Mike Bouckaert was able to purchase "STING" and return it to active sailing on Saginaw Bay. The 2021 MAC again commissions this boat on the open lake in the BYC Mackinac Race. The 2018 and 2019 BYC-Mac race added to "STING'S" experience of several BYC-Mac races that have accumulated over a 20 year period starting in the 1990's. The 2021 race will begin with a solid group of young and older experienced sailors with an emphasis on family all with both Small and Big boat experience

Mike Bouckaert has 25+ years of active sailboat racing experience ranging from HobieCats to daysailers to 40'+ boats. This will be Mike's 8th BYC Mac race, and his third as owner/skipper of "STING". Mike sails "STING" out of the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. Mike's son Dylan has taken an active interest in the sport and also joins the crew.

Brothers Dave and Steve Lange have a combined 50+ years of active sailboat racing experience, ranging from Optimist Prams to Lightnings to 40' PHRF boats. Dave also has BYC-Mac experience and is currently the owner/skipper of the Tartan Ten "Mechanical Music" that races out of the Bay City Yacht Club. Dave's sons Konnor and Kameron and daughter Khloe entered the sport actively 6 years ago and will also crew aboard STING

This year "STING" welcomes Charlie Case as returning crew and Colette Symborski on her first Mac aboard STING

The owner and crew of "STING" wish to extend a SIGNIFICANT Thank you to all the family and friends who have made this race possible....none of which would be possible without their help and support. Good Sailing!!!!!

This will be the first BYC Mack for Vela. Our previous boat was dismasted and totaled several years ago in the St. Elmo’s Night Race. Boat searching finally ended with the purchase of Vela (For Cruising!). I’ve been racing the BYC Mack on “Knot Yours Too” out of PHYC since 2009 in which we’ve placed multiple times (first in class 2013). That terrific crew and owner (including a couple of Old Goats) persuaded me that we should do this year’s race on Vela, which has a few more creature comforts… Looking forward to another great time with hopes for fair winds and a good race.
