Skyline Series

Wednesday Night Racing at its Finest!

The Skyline Series is a series of casual races on Wednesday or Thursday evenings throughout the summer.  They are great opportunities for casual sailors to get involved in racing at a casual level and also a great opportunity for regular sailors to participate in a more casual race and try out new crew or their regular crew in new positions.  We have opportunities at both our Monroe and Belmont Stations.

Monroe Skyline Series

The Wednesday Night Skyline Series runs May 15, 2019 through September 25, 2019 at Chicago yacht Club's Monroe Station. We primarily race in conjunction with Columbia Yacht Club. CYC members will be scored at both Columbia (for the multi club prizes) and at CYC against other CYC boats.  There is an after party each night with a buffet and drink specials at CYC.  CYC boats need to register at both CYC and COLYC sites.  See links below.

Belmont Wednesday Night Skyline Series Runs May 22, 2019 through September 25, 2019.  We race primarily on our own course starting directly outside of the Belmont Harbor entrance.  In 2019, we will be joining Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club at their race course on six Wednesdays.  At the conclusion of racing each Wednesday, join us at Belmont Station for weekly awards, food, drinks and camaraderie.
