Team Pinnacle drove the 45 foot yacht "My Way" to finish 5th of 18 in the Chicago to Mackinac Race -- the longest fresh water race on the planet.
Comprised of mostly Pinnacle members, the team sailed 70 continuous hours and 350 miles through all types of weather.
At one point many miles offshore and in the absolute blackness of night, they surfed downwind at 10 knots under full spinnaker amidst a spectacular lightening storm.
The Wait Is Over -- Shares Now Available for 2011 Season in
Chicago, Stamford and Annapolis
The renewal process for members in northern climates is largely complete, and Pinnacle is now making shares available to new members on a first-come basis.
Patti Feracota of Pinnacle Yachts said "2010 marks our 13th consecutive year of being 100% sold-out in Chicago, and early indications are that we will see the same in 2011."
Many shares have already been taken by those who were on the waiting list. Others interested in becoming a member in 2011 may wish to contact Pinnacle soon.
