A critically important part of doing the Mac is doing it safely. We would like to provide these safety resources for our skippers and crew to enable them to better educate themselves about this critical aspect of our sport.

We strongly encourage all competitors to attend a US Sailing Safety at Sea Seminar as well as other appropriate training for offshore racing. Chicago Yacht Club is hosting a two day and one day seminar on April 1-2, 2017.  Click HERE to register.  Spots will fill up quickly!

Additionally, all competitors should consider taking First Aid / CPR Courses, available through your local Red Cross.


Please check back here frequently as we add more safety resources.
