    Gallery: 2014 Grand Tour to Benefit Leader Dogs For The Blind



    Technically, it’s a vacation. For a few days each August, a group of dedicated PWC riders and support crew embark on a journey of 350 miles in three days, from Mackinaw City to Holland, Michigan. Known formally as The Grand Tour to Benefit Leader Dogs for the Blind, the money raised by each participant helps support the privately-funded organization. Leader Dogs trains guide dogs and the clients they serve all over the USA and the world. Tour participants come from as far away as West Virginia and Florida.

    The experience is one every rider wishes for…mostly. Lake Michigan can dole out big, generous, forgiving rollers or four-foot hard chop that pounds both human and watercraft. Rain and cold make it hard to hold the handlebars. Then there was 2012’s ride, which included the worst Day Two in 17 years: 40-50 degree water, 5-12 foot waves, the gray so dense that the water and sky blended.
