The race up to Mackinac is about more than just a race, it's also about abilities, skill, determination and more.  And this year's race will also serve as the first Set Sail for Autism event, which sees two young adults with autism making the return trip from Mackinac to Port Huron, with Captain Paul Latham onboard his boat Engager.  Dan Collins will serve as Skipper, with him telling us that the event for the two young people with autism, ages 13 and 21, will take them out of their comfort zone, which is a great way to help them grow and develop.  Collins says the pair will arrive in Mackinac to witness the finish and the award festivities before setting sail next Wednesday.  Sponsors include Acheson Ventures, The Palms Crystal Bar and E and A Credit Union.
