Chi Mac Entries Tracking Toward Another Great Year

The entries for the 2010 Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Veuve Clicquot, are flowing in. They’ve been accepting entries for less than two weeks and already have over 160 boats entered. Remember, you’re not officially entered until you also pay the entry fee. Most of you have done that already and have ensured your place in this year’s race.

Invitations to new skippers, or those who haven’t raced in at least one of the last four races, will go out on March 1. The list of people asking for first time entries is growing every day. If you’re considering racing this year CYC encourages you to go to their website and click ‘Request Entry’ Please read the instructions carefully as you fill out the forms.

Everyone is welcome at Mac Stories Night on March 26, at CYC’s Belmont Harbor Clubhouse. The evening features ‘Women of the Mac’ telling their stories. We’ll conclude the evening with the story of Evelyn Wright who sailed double-handed with her cousin Sarah Carey in the 1905 race, finishing second in the sloop class. Reservations are encouraged at 312-861-7777.
