The CMRC has four regattas scheduled this summer; three grade 3 events and a grade 2. Obviously the goal of Ender Racing is to use this oportunity to sharpen our skills, learn, and gear up for big events this summer and next year. Keeping our long-term goals in mind; this provides us with a great opporunity to gain points without a ton of travel, and sail against some of the best match racers in the country.

Chicago Match Race Center opens
So for the past three weeks a group of us here in Chicago have been getting out twice a week and practicing our match racing. As the director of the Chicago Match Race Center, Bill Hardesty has put together a solid curriculum that has benefited both novice and advanced match racers alike. It really has been a great experience. The Chicago weather has held up for us so far and we have been able to practice our starting, timing, and first beat tactics....helping to steepen our learing curves.
