Race Committee

Race Committee The Chicago Yacht Club Race Committee facilitates a fair, quality and competitive racing program. Race Committee volunteers are those who love being on the water and who are interested in learning more about race management.
This committee consists of more than 100 dedicated volunteers, both Chicago Yacht Club members and non-members. The Club is proud to have over 25 U.S. Sailing certified race officers in its ranks, and most other volunteers have participated in race management seminars and training programs.

The Chicago Yacht Club hosts more than 100 races during a season, including the Race to Mackinac, the Sailing World Chicago NOOD Regatta and the ChicagoYacht Club Verve Regattas. Other events include the NACC for Disabled Sailors, Racing Yacht Fleet racing, Wednesday night Beer Can racing, and the Frostbite Series in both the spring and fall. Our reputation as a high quality Race Committee brings us North American Championships for many one design fleets, National Junior Championships, and World Championships for a variety of fleets.

We are always looking for new and enthusiastic volunteers to join our Race Management program. If you are interested in getting involved, contact the Regatta Manager at regattamanager@chicagoyachtclub.org.
