2017 Racing News

There’s something new on the racing scene this summer and Fleet 21 members are invited to participate. CASRA (Chicago Area Sail Racing Association) is partnering with Westrec Marinas to offer new Casual Races. This new Casual Series will offer six races:
Abe Jacobs Regatta- Sunday, June 25th Hosted by Burnham Park Yacht Club

Columbia Yacht Club Casual Race – Sunday, July 9th, Hosted by Columbia Yacht Club

Verve Cup Casual Race – Saturday, August 12th Hosted by Chicago Yacht Club

Air Show Regatta – Sunday, August 20th Hosted by Burnham & Jackson Park Yacht Clubs

Hobelman Regatta Casual Race – Sunday, August 27th, Hosted by Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club

Chicago Regatta Casual Race – Saturday, Sept. 9th, Hosted by Chicago Yacht Club

These races are designed to be fun and easy for new and experienced racers alike. All races will start at 12:30pm to allow more time for racers to get on the water. Races will be approximately 7 – 11 miles and will end by 4 pm. All six races will be free to all boats renting moorings from Westrec in the Chicago
harbor system.

Starting procedures are simple and easy to understand. The start line will open at 12:30pm and close at 1pm, and boats may cross the start line any time during that half-hour period. The Race Committee will record each boat’s start time, and subtract it from its finish time. The Race Committee will use the resulting elapsed time to score the race. CASRA will offer informal ratings for all boats free of charge, so new racers need not pay for a rating certificate.
Yacht clubs will separate new racers from experienced racers, to the extent possible. Each sponsoring yacht club will host a fun party and awards event after each race. Easy. Fun. Simple. It sounds like a great way for Fleet members to give racing a try. More info at chicagosailracing.org.
