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.
