The 110th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac presented by Wintrust Releases the 2018 Safety Regulations (CMSRs)

January 22, 2018 04:32 PM
CHICAGO, IL (January 22, 2018): The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac, presented by Wintrust, announced today the publication on the Race’s website of the 2018 editions of the Chicago Mackinac Safety Regulations (CMSRs) for Monohull and Multihull competitors.

"The Mac has a deep, abiding commitment to safety, and the CMSRs are one way we honor that commitment," said Race Chair Sarah Renz. "The Committee spends the fall reviewing best practices, consulting with experts, and judging the current worldwide state of safety equipment recommendations for offshore races, to ensure that our CMSRs represent the most current knowledge in offshore safety."

Renz said that the documents include change logs which highlighted new requirements for 2018. These include requiring a handheld VHF radio with DSC capability; requiring the ability to mark the position of a crew overboard electronically; and requiring lifelines made of stainless steel due to the propensity of some other materials to fail due to chafe.

Interested competitors can download the CMSRs from the Race Documents section of the Race website, cycracetomackinac.com.
