2007 Chicago to Mackinac Sailboat Race
The following sailfastchicago.com calendars are now published on Google Calendar:
- LMRSRF Area III Racing

- Sailing Events (Strictly Sail, seminars, parties, etc.)
Google Calendar is a free online service provided by www.google.com.
Your Google Calendar account will let you create and edit your own calendars online. You can keep them private for yourself, or publish them for other people to see. You can also let other people edit the calendars. Google Calendars are a good solution for organizing people and events.
You can add Google Calendar to your existing Google Mail account, or create a new account. Either way, it only takes a few seconds to sign up. It really is that quick and easy!
You can get your free account here:
With your Google Calendar account, you can also subscribe to sailfastchicago.com calendars. Race schedule information is then updated for you automatically.
Using Google Calendar– or other software supporting the iCal format, such as Apple iCal or Mozilla Sunbird– is a good solution for the tricky, time-consuming task of managing and communicating crew schedules.
Google Calendar provides an interesting feature- free text message alerts. Not guaranteed to wake up passed-out, hungover sailors on race days, though. However, automatic text alerts may be helpful if sent early the night before racing!

On a lighter note…
For those who may have been curious what happened to Jimmy the Columbia Bar Tender the wife and I ran into him on Sunday getting some sweets at Letizia’s Bakery on Division. He is next door at the Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar Enoteca Roma. He said to let people know, funny guy actually misses the sailors, most flee the likes of us… Consider the word spread!
Jimmy was always a huge favorite among everyone at Columbia Yacht Club, and is the best bartender ever.
