87th Chicago-Waukegan Race this weekend!

The biggest event of the season is happening this weekend! This year the 87th Chicago-Waukegan race will see over 100 area sailboats racing from Montrose Harbor in Chicago to Waukegan Harbor. Many members will be racing in the fleet and the club will be alive with hundreds of racers. All members are encouraged to come down to the club and enjoy the spectacle. If you are available we could use extra volunteers!

Good food and good times at Waukegan | Joseph Conrad Regatta

The Waukegan | Joseph Conrad Regatta was moved to May 19 and went off on schedule at 11:00am. The weather looked threatening all morning but was perfect during the event. There was no rain and the winds were light and from the east.

Attendees were greeted with the club’s Committee boat and new Coronado sailboat tied up to the club’s wharf. Guests were given rides around the harbor and some brave souls even checked out our El Toro sailing dinghies. We even had coloring books available for children.

A Coronado 26 was donated to the club last year. All club members are welcome to use it.

The club’s barbecue was fired up and turned out hamburgers and sausages for all the hungry sailors. The bar had plenty of ice cold beverages for all attendees.

The flag pole was dressed for a party showing flags from many nations. If you don’t see a flag from your heritage, donate one to the club we will fly it at the next event.
