Perry Lewis And Bill Gladstone Of North U Share Advice For The Chicago Mac

The lake was still frozen in patches around the old ice breaker home of Columbia Yacht Club. Our Midwestern sailors can’t wait for winter to be over, and 120 of them trekked out for this sold out race seminar. We had a wide range of experienced sailors attending and it was a great opportunity for all to dust off the snow and salt in anticipation for the 111th CYC RACE TO MACKINAC – JULY 13, 2019.

Continuing our North U. winter seminar series, Perry Lewis and Bill Gladstone hosted the Chicago Mac Strategy seminar at Columbia YC last Wednesday. Perry shared his 40+ years of knowledge and expertise of racing the Chicago Mac and Bill took us through the very useful routing software, Expedition, to plan strategy for a race like the Chicago Mac with his many years of experience also racing this one-of-a-kind event on Lake Michigan.
