Chair, Greg Freeman welcomes Rob Kothe, Sail-World to the 2011 Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac? presented by Veuve Clicquot. This is the first time Sail-World has attended the Chicago Mac and is proud to be manning the official media centre here. In addition to up-to-the-minute reports on pre-race and post-race activities, Sail-World will be engaging with skippers while they are battling for position all along the course.
The Sail-World team, comprised of Rob Kothe, David Schmidt, Greg Nicoll and Elizabeth Kerr, is already stationed in the Chicago Yacht Club, Monroe Station in the Commodore Room that they are sharing with Ion-Earth, a Traverse-City-based provider of tracking solutions. While it was initally quiet in this techno-media hub, the buzz started start first thing Thursday morning when 361 skippers started the registration process for the 103rd Mac.
In addition to the stories, photos and videos being uploaded to the Chicago Mac, you will also be able to follow the race on Facebook and Twitter. http://www.cycracetomackinac.com/press-room/consumer/
