2021 Chicago Regatta presented by Wintrust

Sept. 11, 2021

The collective generosity of our waterfront community achieved a new record in 2020. Now our challenge is to do even more. The Chicago Regatta provides a fun opportunity for all boaters to contribute to the well-being of children while celebrating the boating community that enriches our lives.


The regatta benefits the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois and the charities supported by the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation.


The Chicago Regatta remains the showcase and celebration of the waterfront community's shared generosity, love of the water and compassion for children.


Participants will enjoy familiar and new events this year, including a sunset lighted boat parade, one-design and distance racing, DragonForce model boat racing, a silent auction and the legendary Sweet Home Chicago dock party featuring remote and in-person options for everyone’s comfort and safety.


The regatta lasts a day, but your impact endures. Make plans now to join the fun and maximize our community’s contribution.
