Sail-World.com : New CYC Race to Mackinac Chairman announced

New CYC Race to Mackinac Chairman announced

It has now been announced by the Chicago Yacht Club that Lou Sandoval will be the Chairman of both the 104th and 105th Chicago Yacht Club Races to Mackinac.

Remaining within tradition, the announcement of Sandoval as Chairman was made at the Awards Ceremony that took place on the 5th November.


Outgoing chair of the 102nd and 103rd races, Greg Freeman, introduced Mr. Sandoval at the completion of the awards ceremony that was attended by nearly 400 skippers, crew, other members of the sailing community, Chicago Yacht Club officers and honored guests.

Mr. Sandoval previously served as vice-chairman of the 103rd running of the race. He is a member of Chicago Yacht Club, has served on the committee for the past seven years and has completed in twelve races. Mr. Sandoval has been extremely successful in past races on his boat Karma, winning his section six out of the eight past years.

Mr. Sandoval commented on the work that the committee has undertaken in the months following the completion of the 103rd race this past July.

   .. .  
'We have had plenty of time to reflect upon what the Mac means to each of us over the past four months. Whether we do the race with family, friends or both, each race is significant in its own special way. It is what we do each July - without question', said Sandoval 'The Mac committee has some heavy lifting to do over the upcoming month I know we will be up to the task. We will deliver a quality and safe race for all to enjoy.'

The 104th Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac presented by Vueve Cliquot will take place on July 21, 2012. Participation in the 333 mile race from Chicago Yacht Club to Mackinac Island, Mich. is by invitation only. Chicago Yacht Club looks forward to staging a world-class sailing race for skippers and crews.
