CHICAGO, May 25, 2018 -- With the June 1 entry deadline fast approaching, the countdown is on for the 110th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac (CYCRTM) presented by Wintrust. To date, 310 boats are signed up to race in one of 22 sections split between racing and cruising sailboats.
Once again, our friends at the Hyatt Regency Chicago are delighted to be part of the Race to Mackinac and are offering a special room rate for Mac racers.
The 109th Mac saw a large number of boats retire early; about 1/3 of the fleet did not complete the race. It’s been many years since the fleet has had so many retirements. CYC Mac Committee launched an analysis to determine what the causes were for so many retirements amongst the monohull fleet, and we wanted to share the results with our fellow sailors in the hope that we can all learn a little bit and be better prepared to face challenging conditions in future years.

Effective this year, each boat is required by CMSR 3.8.2 to “…have a watertight handheld VHF radio or handheld VHF radio with waterproof cover. The radio shall have DSC/GPS capability with an MMSI number properly registered to the vessel.” ​
