The 2014 Chicago to Mackinac Yacht Race aboard Chief was 289 non-stop nautical miles. For 106 years the race has been many things. It’s an annual ritual, a reunion, a test of skill, of boat handling and navigational judgement and once in a while, sanity. When it’s all said and done it’s about relationships, stories and the greatest of memories. This film short was captured on GoPro 3 and 3+ black edition cameras. The aerial footage was shot with a Phantom 2 quad-copter. Mike Noble wrote the narration. The video editing was done with Adobe After Effects at Froeter Design. Morgan Fingleton of Shaggy Dog Productions did the sound design.
