Make plans to participate in the exciting events of the 2020 Chicago Regatta presented by Wintrust taking place on Saturday, September 12 at the Chicago Yacht Club. The Chicago Regatta is focused on RAISING FUNDS FOR KIDS. Three Chicagoland charities devoted solely to helping kids; the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, and the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation will all benefit from this wonderful event.

 

The Chicago Regatta presented by Wintrust and hosted by Chicago Yacht Club, offers something for everyone! Buoy racing and a 15 - 25 mile distance race for true competitors, a casual race for cruising boats, a fast and fun poker run for power boats, and a Dragon Force 65 Regatta taking place immediately following the race events.

 

Racers, power boaters and landlubbers alike are invited to the Sweet Home Chicago Dock Party at Chicago Yacht Club’s Monroe Station immediately following the races. Indulge in the Chicago-famous foods that will be served throughout the evening and make sure to place your bids at the silent auction. Then dance the night away on the club’s patio with the sounds of Blues, R&B and Soul  by the Sons of Chicago. This is a party you will want to be a part of!

 

The overall winners of the Chicago Regatta will have their names inscribed on the prestigious Chicago Regatta Trophy, presented by the Pinnacle Foundation. Other awards will be presented as well.
