The Chicago Yacht Club Luders 16 Fleet sails out of Belmont Harbor on the north side of Chicago. (photo) (map)

The Chicago fleet consists of twelve boats, with five boats currently
racing. Typically boats are raced with a three person crew. During
the season (May-September) we race on Saturdays and perhaps Wednesday evenings.
