The Chicago Match Race Center's goal is to provide the highest-level match racing training facility for professional and amateur sailors in the United States. In addition to hosting world-class regattas throughout the summer, the CMRC offers multiple weekly training programs, running from May through September. In addition to a complete fleet of Tom28’s, the CMRC also added brand new Elliott 6m’s to be raced right off the spectator-friendly Belmont Harbor. With Match Racing as an addition to the 2012 Olympic Games, co-founders Don Wilson, an avid racer, and Bill Hardesty, a World Match Race Tour Champion, are bringing the excitement of this global phenomenon to Chicago.
