Verve Cup Offshore Regatta Description

Verve Cup Offshore Regatta - Sailing | Sports in Chicago.

Since 1992, the fastest yachts and sailing teams in the world have come to Chicago’s Lake Michigan for the Verve Cup Offshore Regatta. The historic Chicago Yacht Club sponsors this annual weekend sailing race every August and the Verve Cup Offshore Regatta has now become the biggest course-racing regatta in North America.

Past winners of the Verve Cup Offshore Regatta like D & J McDonnell’s Spanker and James Richardson’s Barking Mad compete for the coveted Verve Cup Trophy. This trophy is one of the top prizes in sailing and is named after the Scottish cutter that won the Chicago Yacht Club Annual Regatta in 1893.

The best place to catch the Verve Cup Offshore Regatta is at the Chicago Yacht Club or along Monroe Harbor. After the races, the Chicago Yacht Club hosts a full-blown sailing festival with kiosks, food, and live music. Take part in the festivities on Monroe Harbor or celebrate with a drink and views of the lake at the W Chicago – Lakeshore.
