Wings\' boat wins at Mackinac
DETROIT – The Red Wings were victorious Monday.

No, not on the ice. The Wings' win came on the high seas when their adopted boat, Sorcery, crossed the finish line first in the second annual Pro Team Challenge Cup, during the 87th sailing of the Bayview Mackinac Race.

Sorcery, owned by brother Larry and Brian Smith, of St. Clair Shores, Michigan, flew the Red Wings’ colors during the three-day race that began Saturday in Port Huron, along the southern shores of Lake Huron.

The Pro Team Challenge, sponsored by the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association, included all four major sports teams in Detroit, including the Lions (NFL), Pistons (NBA), and Tigers (MLB).

Sorcery, a 34 ½ foot Tartan, crossed the finish line in Mackinac Monday at 3:13 a.m. EDT. The Pistons’ boat, the Brandilee, finished second at 5:34 a.m., and the Limerick, while flying the Tigers’ colors, finished third at 9:15 a.m.

The Lions boat, Shillelagh, withdrew from the race.
