The race started in Whitefish Bay in Michigan and is over 300 nautical miles long.  The headquarters is ready for boats to arrive by the Minnesota Slip Bridge in Canal Park. 

The first boat could arrive overnight on Sunday, depending on the weather.

"When the boats start, they're of all different lengths and sizes, and so they come in 24 hours a day from now until Wednesday," race chair, Kris Henry, said. 

There are 35 boats participating this year and three of them are local boats.  The race happens every other year.

There will be a party to celebrate the end of the race on Thursday, where they will announce the winners.  You can track the boats here.
