It is our focus to provide high-level intensive sailing training for the Chicago Sailing Community. For the 2013 season we are offering both an Advanced Match Race Practice and a Keelboat Racing Program. The Advanced Match Race Practice will take place Tuesday and Friday evening between the beginning of May and mid October allowing teams to train and perfect their match race moves for the season and big events. The Keelboat Racing Program will be offered for three 4-week sessions during the year: June, July, and September. This program will take place on Monday evenings allowing teams to refine their tactical decision making and boat handling as well as, getting an introduction to match racing.
Please also check out our Out-Of-Town membership program.
For more information and questions about which program is the best fit for you don't hesitate to contact Taylor Canfield, sailing director at CMRC: firstname.lastname@example.org
