Chicago Yacht Club – Race to Mackinac – July 15 – 18, 2017

Sailors from 15 different U.S. states as well as Ontario, Switzerland, and as far off as Hong Kong, are preparing for the race of a lifetime – the 333 mile Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Veuve Clicquot.

The Mac, as it is affectionately known, kicks off Saturday, July 15, 2017 with 3,000 sailors competing in this world-class sporting event. Although The Mac remains primarily an amateur event, this race has a proven track record of attracting some of the finest sailing talent in the sport.

The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac is the longest, annual freshwater sailing race in the world. It takes place on Lake Michigan.

Hey! That's the way to my place! ~

No thank you. We prefer celebrating on the Island with our Chicago friends. May consider it if it was from Port Huron to Chicago.
