Chicago Match Cup - Big prizes, points at stake in Windy City

'The Chicago Match Cup 2013'    Andy Carter / AWMRT

The Chicago Match Cup, a $100,000 sailing competition and the only U.S. stop on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, will set sail alongside one of Chicago's most popular attractions, the majestic Tall Ships Chicago 2013 Festival, Aug. 7 - 11, 2013.

Twelve of the world's best teams will sail against each other in match race sailing, a form of head-to-head combat similar to the America's Cup, just feet from the edge of Navy Pier. They will compete for their share of the $100,000 prize money purse and points earned toward the Tour's overall World Championship, worth $1.75 million in prize money - the richest in the sailing world.

Navy Pier's east end will be transformed to showcase the best of the Chicago Match Cup and the Tall Ships, promising front-row seats, hospitality areas and live commentary to best enjoy the thrills on the water. Within the Festival area, special family-friendly activities, Tall Ships on-board tours and sail-aways, and a fireworks display each evening.

'There will be something for everyone to enjoy during these two premier yachting events, from experiencing America's Cup-style sailing action, to getting on board these classic yachts, and many shore-side activities for the whole family to enjoy,' said Tod Reynolds, director of Chicago Match Race Center and producer of the Chicago Match Cup.

'We're excited to bring two maritime events to Chicago's iconic landmark,' said Marilynn Gardner, president and CEO of Navy Pier Inc. 'Tall Ships Chicago and the Chicago Match Cup will give our visitors from around the world the opportunity experience and board historic ships and also see the world's top sailors at one great place - Navy Pier.'
