Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(August 21, 2009) This week 11 teams from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Argentina, Denmark, the US Virgin Islands and the USA will start three days of competition for the inaugural edition of the Chicago Match Cup, held over August 21-23. Organized by the Chicago Match Race Center (CMRC), this International Sailing Federation Grade 2 event will be the most international sailing event held this year in Lake Michigan.

CMRC's floating base of operations will be on its 70-foot houseboat moored at the North end of Belmont Harbor, immediately adjacent to the Belmont Yacht Club. Racing will be conducted in the CMRC's dedicated fleet of eight equally-matched TOM 28 class yachts, each with a team of four crew. This video provides a glimpse of what is going on at CMRC:
