About The Sterling Morton Regatta
The newly created Sterling Morton Regatta will take place on May 18-19, 2019. The format of the regatta will be inter-club racing in our fleet of equalized Sonars. These boats are the same as used in the 2018 US Match Race Championships and all of our club’s match race regattas. The Sterling Morton Trophy was originally gifted to Chicago Yacht Club for a Star Class interclub fleet race in 1937. The engraving impressively lists names such as Nye, Stearns, Comer and Parks who are all part of Chicago’s sailing heritage. Regatta organizers will review applications and notify the nine selected teams via email. Invitations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
