2008 Strictly Sail Chicago

Strictly Sail Chicago 2008

Strictly Sail Chicago has become an annual mid-winter tradition for local Chicago and midwestern sailors.

If you have attended before, you know what to expect. If you have not attended before, you should plan to go.

Here are a few brief items to look for at the show.

The Beneteau 40.7 Fleet and Chicago T-10 Class Association are among some of the racing associations represented.

The University of Illinois Sailing Club will be selling t-shirts to raise funds for sailing activities and competition in Midwest Collegiate Sailing Association (MCSA) regattas.

Hedlund Marine will exhibit four new LaserPerformance (formerly known as Vanguard) sailboat models, plus new Hobie and Gill sailboats. “This show will be the first time most of Chicago has seen an SB3”, according to John Porter, “and it is also the North American debut of the Bug, a new boat for juniors.”

Harken introduces the innovative new RigTune Pro digital tension gauge and new Black Magic MKIV Loop Block, AirBlock, Flip-Flop block and other designs.

A discount Navy Pier parking coupon is available here.
