Chicago Yacht Club – Race to Mackinac – Photos

With 240 entrants, the Chicago Yacht Club’s Race to Mackinac presented by Wintrust (CYCRTM) promises once again to be a spectacle worth taking in, as it returns to Lake Michigan and Lake Huron this week. Cruising and Performance Racing Divisions start the race at Chicago’s Navy Pier on Friday (July 16) and Saturday (July 17), respectively, with organizers suggesting the window of 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday as the best public viewing opportunity. In 10-minute intervals, starting at 11 a.m. and ending around 2:40 p.m., seventeen “sections” for ORC, One-Design, Multihull and Doublehanded boats will start their 289 nautical mile journey to Mackinac Island – an annual trek that, over more than 11 decades, has become the stuff of legend in sailboat racing.

The Chicago Yacht Club-Race To Mackinac race division gets under way this Saturday. The lead boats will start arriving on Mackinac Island as early as late Sunday. By Tuesday the marina will be filled with sailboats and successful racers will be celebrating on the island. #TBT: Here are some of our favorite photos from previous versions of the Race To Mackinac. – Chicago Yacht Club Race To Mackinac – July 15 – 19, 2021 >>>
