Greetings Fellow Sailors

Greetings Fellow Sailors:

Entries in the 2011 Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, Presented by Veuve Clicquot, are now open. Automatic Invitations, which go to Skippers who have raced in any one of the last four races (with a few exceptions) went out yesterday, Friday, February 4, 2011. Invited Competitors are encouraged to enter the race as soon as possible as we do expect to sell-out again this year. Remember that you are not officially in the race until you have accepted the invitation and paid the entry fee. (Please refer to NOR 4.2)

We are also accepting Requests for Invitation to this year's race from first time Skippers or those who have not raced in at least four years. We will begin reviewing these requests next week. The first round of invitations will go out on or about February 26, 2011. Skippers in this category are encouraged to make their entry request as complete as possible. Pay special attention to providing a complete sailing history on crew members and make sure to provide all required emergency contact information including a valid working e-mail address for each member of the crew.

As previously noted, the NOR is published and is available on our website as are the Mackinac Safety Regulations (MSRs) for both monohulls and multihulls.

As always, if you have any questions, contact

Best regards,

Greg Freeman
