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 17920158514813028 Raced 333NM from Chicago to Mackinac Island and all I have to show for it is this pic. Three first-timers ready for their ceremonial beer under the Mackinac Bridge while sailing to the finish line after a very long and light air race with plenty of time glassed off. 📍 Now in San Francisco to find out where the wind gods have been keeping the goods 🌬
