Purinton race, traditionally held in early summer, kicks off SBYC's racing season.  The race starts off of Potawatamie State Park and ends at the Menomonee, Michigan break wall.  The race features a staggered start to enable participants to enjoy a social gathering at the M&M yacht club after the race.  The course is approximately 21.5 miles long.
