Strictly Sail Chicago 2012 / by Wynand

After a long (22hr) drive from South Florida, we arrived in the "Windy City" for a serious detailing session on 9 sailing vessels.  With one day left before the show started, it seemed a daunting task having hardly slept on the way here but, we managed to come to the party and got everything done on time!  Three Hunters, four Catalinas and two Seawards.

With the Chicago Sail boat show now in full swing here at the Navy Pier exhibition hall, we can sit down for a moment or two and enjoy the warmth and hospitality of all the organisers and volunteers who have gone through a lot of trouble to make this event a truly magnificent experience.  Plenty of food and drinks of of all sorts to go around at very reasonable prices.

Fun activities for the whole family includes a jumping castle for the kids, model boat racing on an indoor pool as well as a small life sized sailboat simulator to try out your tack and jibe skills without getting wet!

With interactive seminars all throughout the day and plenty of boats, boat gear and clothes to look at, or buy, it would be time well spent for people of all ages.

More to come!
