"Trifecta" With Chicago Match Cup, August 13-15

CMRC Fans,

August is a big month! The CMRC is proud to kick off the first of three Grade 2 events, in the "East Coast Trifecta". Partnering with Bayview Yacht Club in Detroit and with Manhasset Bay Yacht Club in New York, this series brings in some of the best match racers in the world, all vying for a chance to qualify for a spot in the 2011 Grade 1 Congressional Cup.

Also, we had a very eventful July, with 2 back-to-back regattas, over the July 16-19 "long" weekend. Sailing Director Bill Hardesty won the first event, while Sally Barkow made history as the first female skipper (and all female crew) to win a CMRC regatta at the second event. For more information, read further below.

We are excited for all of the festivities (including several parties) and for our partners who have helped generate excitement for our CMRC Chicago Match Cup.

See you on the water!
