We are excited a sponsor of the Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championships in Chicago.
2004 was the first season that the Lake Michigan Beneteau First 36.7 Fleet competed in one-design racing, and the fleet has been going strong since. The fleet has had one-design starts in the Colors Regatta, Chicago NOOD Regatta, Chicago to Mackinac Race, Verve Cup Regatta and Area 3 events every year with double-digit participation in each.
Not only does the Lake Michigan 36.7 Fleet see competitive racing on the course, but there is a great level of camaraderie between the owners and crews. This makes for great conversation and lots of laughs after a spirited day of racing. Whether it be along the docks, under the regatta tent, or on any given night when Mark Norris and Bob Foley can be found holding court at the CYC’s Mac Bar, the Lake Michigan 36.7 Fleet represents the best of what one-design racing has to offer.
