Port Huron-to-Mackinac Island Sailboat Race

Some of my favorite photos from shooting aerials of the 92nd Port Huron-to-Mackinac Island Sailboat Race. While this year's start was not as colorful as last, with the wind being out of the north (colorful spinnakers are used when there is a south wind), the wind direction seemed to make for an even more aggressive start, with the boats all lining up parallel to the east-west facing starting line, jockeying for the best position.
