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 12, 2024 (cruising division) and Saturday, July 13, 2024 (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.

4. The Race to Mackinac started with beautiful sunny skies, but near the end of the starts a storm broke out like no other.  The rain was big, cold and fierce.  The rain was so thick you swear it was snowing.  Waterproof gear got tested.
