The Wilmette Harbor Club, located north of Chicago on Lake Michigan, includes a clubhouse with both indoor and outdoor dining, a gas dock, and mooring for several hundred boats. Since 1929 the Wilmette harbor's Sheridan Shore Yacht Club has hosted sailboat fleet racing during the summer months. Wilmette harbor is also home to the Sheridan Shore Sailing School for both adults and children.

WHC All Fleet Racing kicked off the season with the first of 4 races on June 16th.  

Eight boats participated, representing  five fleets.

The day was hot with the promise of 10 to 20kt winds but diminished to 3 - 5kts by mid race.

Congratulations to D’Artagnan of the Dolphin fleet winning the race on an adjusted time basis.

Runners up were Quiver for 2nd place and Seventy Three coming in the money at 3rd place.

All Fleet races are open to any WHC sailboats  and is a fun way to spend an afternoon competing with fellow sailors.

No racing experience is required – we will give you the basics.

Handicaps are used to level the playing field so it doesn’t matter if you are sailing a racing machine or a Winnebago.

To learn more about upcoming All Fleet races contact John Kennedy or John Hellmuth.

The All Fleet races are planned monthly with a follow-on deck party. Future races are scheduled for July 15, August 12 and September 9.
