2021 Chicago Regatta presented by Wintrust


The events of the 2021 Chicago Regatta will be different than in years past.  Yet, the core purpose of raising funds for three Chicago area charities remains.  The Chicago Regatta is still the showcase for the waterfront community's shared generosity, love of the water, and compassion for children.

The beneficiaries of this event -- University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital, SOS Children's Villages Illinois, and the organizations supported by the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation -- have been hit particularly hard by recent events.  The collective generosity of the boating community is needed now more than ever.

Come September 11, whether we are sheltering in place or staking our place on the starting line, it is our place to help.  As so much feels unmoored, what's most important endures.
