Situated at the junctions of two of the world's largest bodies of (frozen in winter) fresh water - Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, St. Ignace, is close to the world famous Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.
Conditions permitting (and this is very likely) the marathon portion of WISSA 2012 will go out to Mackinac Island and back. This area experiences extraordinarily high wind velocities year around, but especially in the winter.
So, start planing now. This is the first time in 17 years that WISSA has been held in the USA. There will be 86,000,000 households watching on TV by way of NBC Sports! Do NOT miss this opportunity to get air time for your sponsors. Racing conditions will be excellent. The Short Track Slalom (STS) will be run by the best in the world - Riçards Liepins from Riga, Latvia.
Four time race Master Renaud from Quebec will handle the course racing.
We are currently working with airlines and local hotels to reduce the costs for overseas travelers.
