Peter Thornton’s Volvo 70 Il Mostro broke its own race course record today in the 93rd Bell’s Beer Bayview Mackinac Race. The newly established elapsed time record for the 254-nautical mile Cove Island Course is 21:45:12. Il Mostro’s previous record, set in 2015, was 23:39:54. Il Mostro missed breaking the course’s multihull record (held by Rick Warner’s Arete) by a mere 15 seconds.
