Sailing on Lake Michigan

Chicago Yacht Club Race Teams

For years, the Chicago Yacht Club has been able to provide junior sailors with one of the most competitive yacht club racing programs in the country. The teams travel locally, regionally and nationally racing in some of the most competitive regattas in the US.

Acceptance onto any of the racing teams is based on prior sailing experience and coach evaluation. All members of the Chicago Yacht Club Race Teams are expected to be active and productive members of the team at all times, both in practice and at competitions. 

Any travel that our racers do relies heavily on parent involvement for transportation, chaperoning and general team support.  Regatta expenses such as travel, meals, entry fees and lodging are the responsibility of the individual sailors.  These expenses are not covered by the program tuition.


Please go to the registration page of our website to sign up for the appropriate Race Team. Remember, sailors may only sign up with permission of the Sailing Staff.
