Bernida is a Universal Rule R Class Sloop and a thoroughbred racing yacht. She made her way to the Great Lakes in 1925 and won the inaugural Bayview-Port Huron Mackinac Race later that summer. She won again in 1927. After refurbishment in 2010, she entered the Bayview-Port Huron to Mackinac Race in 2012 and repeated her victory of 87 years before. She was donated to the Michigan Maritime Museum within weeks of her triumph. She is fast and elegant; like the 1920’s. Come join the Museum and the crew to experience Bernida yourself!
