There is a reason Chicago sailors have always preferred to sail out of Monroe Harbor.
At the heart of the city, Monroe is the center of Chicago’s sailing community. Columbia and the Chicago yacht clubs are located here, and Monroe is the start of the Mac race, the NOOD and home to the beer can racing series.
Sailing a boat out of Monroe puts you in the center of the action, while letting you feel a million miles away. You’re a short walk from the Art Institute, the Museum Campus, Millennium Park, Chicago's River Walk and all of the restaurants and attractions the Loop has to offer.
And yet, your mooring, just a hundred yards offshore, is an isolated retreat, your peaceful home away from home.
