Each July, hundreds of sailboats race from Port Huron to Mackinac Island, Michigan in the Bayview Mackinac Race. When you complete 25 of these races you become fondly known as an “Old Goat” and become a member of the Society of Mackinac Island Old Goats. Once on the island, many new Old Goats are celebrated (humiliated?!) with a range of goat apparel and headgear so their accomplishment can be recognized.
In 2022, my husband completed his 25 races and I designed the crew shirts for the Avatar crew, skippered by Andrew Morlan. The design was inspired by heraldic motifs and incorporates the silhouette of Avatar, a Santana 35. The design was hand-drawn in ink and digitized in Adobe Illustrator for the final printing.
The shirts were screen printed by the Ann Arbor Tshirt Company.
