EYE ON THE PRIZE

PART 2...ON THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM @sojournerracingteam

Some of the teens and young adults on Sojourner’s crew of Sea Scouts will be taking on the race for the very first time.

Sojourner, another boat signed up in the Shore Course division, is a 30’ Seidelmann 299 owned and raced by the Boy Scouts of America Sea Scout Ship 1148. Its crew is comprised of a mix of five boys and girls – Caleb and Caitlin Parton (Detroit), Billy Stimson (Riverview, Mich.), Rachael Washburn (Trenton), Sara Mazurek (Trenton) – ranging in ages from 16 to 20 and three adult leaders, Becky Washburn (Trenton), Bill Tilley (Grosse Ile) and the Sea Scout unit’s Founder Timothy Branson (Dearborn). They are all from the Dearborn, Dearborn Heights and Trenton areas of Michigan.

“This will be the boat’s first-ever Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race, and for two of the kids (Caitlin and Billy), it will be their first time, too,” said Branson, who sailed in the 2017 race for his first time as crew and will serve as skipper this year. “They are both excited and a bit nervous, but the others have a better idea of what’s involved, since they’ve raced on other people’s boats. And all of the kids have helped ferry boats back from Mackinac in the past, but this time it’s strictly a crew of Sea Scouts.”

In preparation for this adventure, Sojourner has raced weekly in local regattas and in a Tuesday night series. The crew gained some heavy-air experience sailing back from the Mills Regatta on Lake Erie in 35 knots. According to Branson, Billy will handle the foredeck and flying spinnaker, Caitlin is a grinder, and Sarah, Caleb and Rachael have all been designated as helmsmen. There will be four-hour shifts where every hour one crew rotates off and another crew rotates on, and an adult will be in the cockpit at all times.

“Basically, we’ve been preparing for three years,” said Branson. “The boat, built in 1979, was donated to us three years ago, and we’ve pretty much gone through breaking everything on the boat and replacing it. The Edison Boat Club of Detroit pretty much adopted us, so we’ve had an awesome place to sail out of, and we were able to outfit the boat with help from them and Bob Cowles of the Detroit Yacht Club’s Sailing Development Fund. He heard we were fundraising like crazy and sent us a big chunk of what we needed to make the boat extremely safe and more modern to train the kids. The Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race has a list of required and suggested safety gear; I figured if kids were going, we were going to bring it all on.” 

As it stands now, there are 14 boats in Sojourner’s ORR Class O that are similarly rated. “We’re hoping for a better-than-average finish,” said Branson. “We’re shooting for the top five but will be happy with middle of the pack.” 

When Sojourner gets delivered from Bayview to Port Huron before the race, it plans to have aboard some crew members affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is part of a program coordinated between the Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race and Set Sail for Autism. (The race also supports the Alliance for the Great Lakes.)

For the full release and captions go to http://www.bycmack.com/raceupdates.cfm?RaceNews=354
SET SAIL FOR AUTISM

Crunch time is here and we need your help! For years, Bayview has partnered with Set Sail for Autism to put young adults with a chaperone on boats for the return deliveries from Mackinac to Detroit or Chicago, and this has been a great success enjoyed by the participants and crews alike. 

This year, in order to simplify logistics for everyone, we have modified the program to focus on pre-race deliveries from Detroit to Port Huron. We are in severe need of host boats. If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please email Ryan Farrell, Rear Commodore Bayview Yacht Club, at rjfarrell22@gmail.com.

To learn more about this great cause, visit setsailforautism.org, or come to BYC tonight to watch the them duke it out in the river in the 2nd Annual Set Sail for Autism J120 Thursday Night Challenge sponsored by Rest Assured Property Management.

Thank you for your support!

Comment on Facebook

I love that place. I had been inside. I believe Chris is there in spirit, hence the beautiful flowers. Have fun!

Every time I watch the film, I feel magically transformed. Thank you John Barry, Jane Seymour, Christopher Plummer and R.I.P. Christopher Reeve.

thanks for sharing

Thank you for sharing. .....I came to the island.....because I knew it was Somewhere In Time week. And though not at The Grand....am here to share in the love for Jane/Elise and Chris/Richard....enjoying all the folks in their Somewhere In Time costumes. Am loving all your posts....have a nice time Jane.

I was there while it was being filmed. I got a picture of Jane coming off a carriage to film and I have a picture of Christopher Reeve smiling at me then he winked....I was only 10 years old. What a experience! <3

One of my favorite movies of all time.

My favorite for since the first time I saw it....33 years ago..

That was ONE BEAUTIFUL MOVIE. miss Seymour. Sad, and then beautiful ending....

One of my Favorite Movies ever ! It never played at the Movie Theaters because there was a strike going on the weekend of its release. But about 20 years ago my husband surprised me to a Special Somewhere In Time weekend in Chicago and we all were able to meet some cast members and Watch the Movie on the Big Screen . I will never forget that wonderful day.

SOMEWHERE IN TIME is legendary!!! R.I.P. Christopher Reeves!!! Christopher Plummer is badass in this movie but Jane Seymour is a goddess from another time in this movie!!! Solitaire(Live And Let Die) was sexy but Elise was stunning!!!

Hi Jane would love to have met you today. I watched you and Christopher Reeves being filmed for your wonderful movie. I was born on and graduated high school on Mackinac Island in 1979. Still tear up every time I watch Somewhere In Time. Brings back beautiful memories of a wonderful Summer. Enjoy your visit and Welcome back.

You look the same Jane. I enjoyed being an extra in the movie and hanging out with Reeves and Plummer. Great memories!

Thanks for sharing!

I remember being on Mackinaw Usland when " Somewhere in Time" was filming. My girls & I delivered a " Superman cookie" to Christopher Reeves! Crazy idea hey? We did get a handwritten thank you note from Chris!👍🏽💥

I wish Chris was there also !!! I love,love,love this movie

My absolute favorite movie!!!!!! Chris is there in spirit!

The ultimate romantic film.

I would have loved to be there. So lovely of you to share your carriage ride.

My very most favorite movie! That's when I fell for Jane!

As lovely today as she was back in 1979 when she filmed it!

As soon as 'Chris' is mentioned, I teared up. He is definitely with you. Everyone will feel it I'm sure.

This is great! Enjoy and Happy SWIT Anniversary!!!

When i first came up to the Grand, I was playing the soundtrack from the movie and sobbing. I had to call my best friend that I had seen the movie with when it first came out...i was crying and saying I'm here...I finally made it! Took me 30 some years bit I made it! Still one of the most precious moments of my life!

I was just thinking the same of Mr Reeve glad you are there enjoy the beauty wonderful movie Somewhere in time😇

So lovely meeting you 💗✨😍
