How far would you go for a sailboat race? For a Wilmette Harbor Club/Sheridan Shores Yacht Club member, the answer is 4,425 miles to a venue near the Arctic Circle.

Karen Vorreiter, Cruising Fleet Captain, took all those great racing photos in the Race Weekend 2018 Photo Gallery.  She also wrote this, enjoy!!

The rich history of Wilmette Harbor Club is captured in a pictorial history book titled Wilmette's Nautical History, prepared by a 60th Anniversary Committee in 1982 consisting of David C. Leach, Rollie B. Schmitt, and Roland D. Bautzmann.
