Watching a storm from the shoreline at Pier Marquette Park in Muskegon. Lightning, thunder, and rain pelting as I wait for the Lake Express ferry boat to appear in the channel. The boat will take the guys (including my husband) to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in preparation for the Queen’s Cup sailboat race.
The race begins 6 pm Wisconsin time (7 pm our time) in Milwaukee and finishing at Muskegon–approximately 69 nautical miles. This race is an overnight sprint across Lake Michigan. Over 200 boats plan to compete.
From the shoreline, looks and sounds pretty wild out there on the horizon. Praying for safety, no sea sickness, and a fast race!
