Power & Sail In-Water Tech Show


2019 marks the 8th Annual Power & Sail In-Water Technology Showcase

The continuing goal of this two-day event is to highlight the Chicago Yacht Club to the Lake Michigan yachting community and perspective members by demonstrating the Club’s leadership in the nautical arts.   

This is accomplished by showcasing the latest in power and sailing yacht technology and is in keeping with the mission of the Chicago Yacht Club to encourage, promote, and develop knowledge, participation, and enjoyment in all aspects of yachting.  

This family friendly FREE show will once again highlight the latest technology, style, design, and construction features available from various manufacturers of distinctive styles of power and sail yachts in the Great Lakes market.  Representatives from the participating dealers and manufacturers will be present to answer questions and discuss the features of the vessels that are open for touring during all event hours. In addition, indoor exhibitors in the main dining room will display new boating technology, electronics and accessories.  

All members of the Chicago Yacht Club, power, sail, cruise or racer, are invited and encouraged to attend this invitation only event. The Club also invites all boat owners with a slip or on a buoy in the Chicago harbors along with individuals from its perspective member list. The dealers cull their databases of boat owners and prospects and invite that group to attend. Each year this event has resulted in many new members joining the Club.  

Last year’s event drew over 800 invitees who enjoyed touring more than 30 yachts from 13 participating dealers, free drinks and appetizers, live music, and indoor exhibits as well as a hands-on safe boating demonstration for the whole family. It was a perfect day with bright skies and warm weather. Special thanks go to Wintrust as a major sponsor for their generous support of this showcase.  

The event will be held on Friday, May 31st from 3:00 to 9:00 pm and Saturday, June 1st from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Live music will be part of the event both days!  Chef Larry and the Club staff will serve a delicious assortment of complimentary hors de ‘oeuvres and drinks to all attendees. Visit the Wintrust display while you’re there to check out their offerings.  What better way to spend a day or two at the Club!   

Mark your calendars today! Talk to your family, friends, dock mates and anyone who you believe would be a good addition to the Club and get it on their calendars. It promises to be even bigger, better and more exciting than ever!
