Match Racing

Exciting to participate in and watch, there is no better way to raise your game than a one-on-one fight to the finish. Match racing requires the fundamentals of a fleet racer, the tactics of a chess master, and the teamwork of a Nascar pit crew. In less than twenty minutes teams will have completed a boxing match-like pre-start, two spinnaker sets and douses, and enough tacks and gybes to tire a marathon runner. Participating in match racing will improve all aspects of your sailing.

Whether it is introducing sailors to the match racing challenge or providing a forum for the best in the world battle it out on the race course, the Chicago Match Race Center does it all just minutes from the heart of one of America's biggest cities.
