If you are into spectator sports, and can be in Marquette next weekend, there will be an amazing site on Lake Superior.
Marquette will host the 2012 Ensign National Championships.
From August 12th through the 16th captains and crews from across the United States and even some international sailors will be hitting the waters of Marquette Bay to compete for a national championship.
By using one design boats the race isn’t determined by the craft but rather the skill of its’ captain and crew.
You can watch from land or from the water.
But race officials ask that boaters keep a safe distance away so they do not get in the way of the competition.
The regatta is sponsored by the Ensign Fleet 35 and the Marquette Yacht Club.
