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 Wintrust.

The Mac, as it is affectionately known, kicks off Friday, July 22, 2022 (cruising division) and Saturday, July 23, 2022 (racing division) 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.

Instagram post 17940354629236666 Chicago to Mackinac Island Race today, the longest freshwater sailing race in the world. We left the house shortly after storms dropped 1.7 inches of rain on our house in just 40 minutes. Fortunately, none got in our basement and the skies cleared enough to watch the sailors race. You can’t beat this backdrop for the start of a race! They are now sailing through the night and some severe storms. Praying for safety for all.

Instagram post 17970933598670059 The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac (racetomackinac) each year brings racers from across the Great Lakes (and the globe) for the largest annual freshwater yacht race in the world. 2021 was no exception as racers were able to compete in challenging conditions from wind and swells to competitive light air racing across Lake Michigan. This video captures the moments and sailors on board "Chewbacca," a Nelson-Marek 50' racing program from Bayfield, Wisconsin that I’ve been racing with for years as we competed in the 2021 CYC Race to Mackinac.

Wonderful people, memories, and racing all around with the Chewy crew – Better late than never on the edit 🙂
