Catalina Fleet 21 Catalina Owners Association, Chicago Region

Category Archives: Recent Update

Welcome to Catalina Fleet 21

Why you should join today!

We are an association of Catalina sailboat owners in the Greater Chicagoland region, one of the most established fleets (having celebrated 50 years in 2023), and one of the most active Catalina fleets around. Members have boats of all sizes, from 22 to 42 feet.

Great programs and sailing outings

Our fleet regularly has interesting sailing-related programs on topics relevant to the whole sailing community. Recent programs include DIY boat maintenance, cruising tips, marine weather, ecological lectures and much more. Many programs are offered remotely via Zoom, and we also have in-person gatherings.

The summer calendar includes outings to many of our members’ harbors. Some of our most popular have been a season-opening Margarita party, shrimp boils, Kenosha overnight, and sail-in and Ribfest in Michigan City. Longer cruises along the Michigan or Wisconsin shores are often on the calendar.

We sail from all harbors

Our members sail from the following harbors: Belmont, Burnham, Charleston SC, DuSable, Hammond, Kenosha, Lake Macatawa MI, Michigan City, Monroe, Montrose, North Point, Punta Gorda FL, Reefpoint Marina (Racine), Seabrook Marina TX, Waukegan and Wilmette.

We are primarily a cruising fleet, with ports of call all around the southern shores of Lake Michigan. Even when the boats are on the hard, the activities and programs don’t stop.
