Little Traverse Beaver Island RaceThe annual Beaver Island Race & Rally is a series of two 30-mile distance races from Harbor Springs to St. James, Beaver Island and back. This relaxed and friendly weekend is a great opportunity to sail offshore in Northern Michigan, and a fun way to visit beautiful Beaver Island. Race 1 (Harbor Springs to Beaver Island) is run in a “pursuit” format, where all boats have their own starting time, and the order of finish determines the results. The scenery is amazing as you sail along the incredible north shore of Little Traverse Bay and out into the open lake for the crossing to Beaver Island. Upon arrival, competitors gather on the dock to recount the day, and arrange large group dinners at local restaurants. Race 2 (Beaver Island to Harbor Springs) is run in a traditional PHRF handicap format, with all boats starting at the same time. This leg of the race typically features a spectacular afternoon spinnaker run back into the crystal waters of Little Traverse Bay
