One of the largest course-racing events in North America, The Verve Cup, has developed into a world-class regatta, attracting many national and international competitors. Annually, this 3 day sailing event hosts well over 100 yachts to the beautiful Chicago lakefront and skyline.

 

In August of 2019, the Chicago Yacht Club will host the 27th annual Verve Cup Offshore Regatta. This event will feature three days of offshore buoy racing and a separate one-day distance race.

For this three-day regatta, boats will sail either in a handicap section or in a one-design section. Brag flags and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in each section. The overall winner in what is determined to be the most competitive section by formula will be awarded the perpetual Verve Cup Trophy.

Likewise, for the Distance Race, brag flags and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in each of the four handicap sections, and the first place winner in the fleet determined by handicap will be awarded the 8 Mile Buoy Trophy.

The Verve Cup Distance Race Awards will be given out during Saturday's Sundowner Party, and the three-day Verve Cup Regatta Awards, including the Verve Cup Overall winner, will be given out at the Sunday Awards Party.

 

Race Documents will be available soon!

 

We look forward to seeing you at the Chicago Yacht Club in 2019!
