in 53 days - Race to Mackinac @ Chicago YC
Jul 21 – Jul 23 all-day
Race to Mackinac @ Chicago YC | Chicago | Illinois | United States

The first Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac was held in 1898 as an informal race of five boats, and Vanenna won in 51 hours. It was six years later before the second Mac ran in 1904, after which it was then held intermittently until after World War I. Since 1921, the Mac has been a highly-anticipated annual event not only by the Chicago Yacht Club immediate family but is also revered by the extended racing community and by the City of Chicago.

The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac is a 333 statute mile (289.4 nautical miles) course starting just off Navy Pier and ending at Mackinac Island, Michigan. It is the oldest annual freshwater distance race in the world. The boats cross the finish line between the lighthouse on Round Island and Windermere Point on Mackinac Island. Recently the race has had about 330 yachts of various sizes and sections including a cruising class, multi-hull, double handed, and many one design sections. The race is by invitation only.

in 74 days - J/109 Great Lakes Championship at CYC Verve Cup @ Chicago YC
Aug 11 – Aug 13 all-day
J/109 Great Lakes Championship at CYC Verve Cup @ Chicago YC | Chicago | Illinois | United States

The Chicago Yacht Club will host the annual Verve Cup Offshore Regatta. The event features a three-day offshore regatta, as well as a one day Distance Race. As the largest course-racing regatta in North America, Verve Cup has developed as a world-class event, attracting national and international sailing competitors. This three-day event will attract 170 yachts to the beautiful Chicago lakefront. Participating yachts range in size from 25 feet up to 80 feet in length, and carry crew from 4 to 20 persons. During the regatta, Chicago Yacht Club will welcome over 3,000 racers, spouses and guests at their Monroe harbor clubhouse. These participants are treated to three days of top quality racing, followed by food, entertainment and camaraderie.

Competitors participate in multiple races, and boats sail either with a rating handicap or a one design so that boats of different size and character can compete against one another in one of the 18 plus racing sections. Overall prizes are awarded to the top finishers in each section, with one offshore boat winning the perpetual Verve Cup Trophy. The Verve Cup trophy dates from 1893 and is Chicago Yacht Club’s oldest trophy. Overall prizes are awarded for each class of boat.
