Saturday, September 8th 2018  Racing Abandoned N over A

Dear Chicago Regatta Competitors,  
We have been carefully monitoring the weather for tomorrow’s racing.  Current forecasts are calling for east-northeast winds at 20-25 knots, with gusts into the 30s, and 6 to 8 foot waves.  The primary goal of the Chicago Regatta are to provide a fun day on the water for everyone, and to raise money for kids.  We also want to keep everyone safe, and avoid any major gear breakdowns.  Accordingly, we have decided to ABANDON both the Buoy and Distance Races scheduled for tomorrow, and have raised N over A at both Belmont and Monroe Stations.   While these races have been abandoned, we still plan to race Dragon Force 65 remote-controlled boats at Monroe Harbor tomorrow afternoon. 

Skippers’ meeting will begin at 1715 hours at Monroe.  Click the following link to register:  

The Sweet Home Chicago Dock Party and Silent Auction will take place tomorrow night, as scheduled.  The band is warming up, Chef Larry has a great buffet planned, and we have a fantastic set of silent auction items.
