Bell's Brewery will continue its sponsorship of the "Bell's Beer Bayview Mackinac Race" through 2014.

Detroit's Bayview Yacht Club, one of the most storied and historical sailing clubs in the world, will host its 88th "Bell's Beer Bayview Mackinac Race" this summer with yachts traveling from Port Huron to Mackinac beginning July 14.

Over 200 sailboats and 2,500 sailors are expected to take part in the event. An estimated 100,000 sailing fans and families on the U.S. and Canadian borders will likely attend the festivities leading to the race start.

Fans will be able to follow boats with a GPS system available on both Bell's Brewery and Bayview Yacht Club's websites.

Sailors may choose one of two courses - the shorter course, "Shore Course," covers 204 nautical miles and the longer course, "Cove Island Course," covers 259 nautical miles.

This year five Divisions will be offered: Cove Island Racing, Shore Course Racing, Shore Course Cruising, Multi-Hull and Double-Handed.

Bell's is one of the largest beer producers based in Michigan and has been a sponsor of the race since 2009.

In the past the race has drawn in between $30-$59 million, making it one of the premier events throughout Michigan.
