100 days to go!

April 11, 2012 11:27 AM
Fellow Mac Racers:


As the smell of bottom paint permeates the boat yard and we put away our bunny ears and Easter baskets, we can’t help to think that in 100 days we will be shoving off to embark on the 104th Running of our annual classic, affectionately referred to as ‘the Mac’. I wanted to provide a quick overview of what we have in store for you this year.

Registrations continue to arrive and the RFI queue has some very interesting boats requesting to participate. As we hit the 300 registered boat mark and close in on the entry deadline, you will not want to be left behind, as we have a great race planned for 2012. If you haven't submitted your RFI, please do so as soon as you can. If you have received an invitation but haven't accepted it yet, again, please take quick action to ensure your spot at the start line.

A quick reminder that The One-Design Section request deadline is in a couple of days- April 13, 2012. So if your fleet delegate has not sent your request in to our Chief Measurer, do so today.

Back by popular demand, the Yacht Club Challenge will be open to any club with at least five boats in the race (NOR 15.2). So who is in this year? Who will win it?

We will offer our ‘Adopt-a-Skipper’ program again this year. This program matches first timers with experienced skippers, giving you a chance to have someone who can answer your questions and give advice as you prepare for your first race. We encourage all first-time participants to take advantage of this free program, and we particularly encourage members of our cruising division to do so. If you're interested, please contact the Race Coordinator at the e-mail below.

We have a full line-up of celebrations on the Chicago end and on the island. There will be plenty of activities for every member of your crew and family. Stay tuned for more information as these unfold.

I’m sure I will see many of you at the upcoming Safety at Sea Seminar coming up this Saturday (which is sold out) or at the Chris Bedford weather seminar on Sunday, which still has a few seats available (call CYC Front desk at 312-861-7777 to make a reservation, see the Mac Website for more details).

For questions, issues or concerns, contact racecoordinator@chicagoyachtclub.org

See you in Chicago very soon!
