Chicago Classic Boat Rendezvous SEPT 16TH 3pm – 8pm


CHICAGO CLASSIC BOAT RENDEVOUS SEPT 16TH
First ever Classic Boat Rendezvous on the Chicago River Walk at the center of town on Saturday, September 16 from 3-8pm. Could this be the first event of this kind held in the heart of a major US city?

The city has given us close to 1000′ of frontage on the river downtown and we believe depending on the size of boats registered we may be able to accommodate as many as 40 boats. There will be a registration fee of $30 to help defray costs (insurance, security, entertainment and proper fendering for the boats).

We hope classic boats planning to attend the annual convention in Racine may consider staying in the Midwest for another week to have a chance to enjoy downtown Chicago on a Saturday in September. In addition, the Canal Street Marina has offered to provide secure gated space for all trailered boats attending the Rendezvous at no charge.

We are preparing registration materials and will have both posters and tee-shirts available. But because space is so limited (max 40 boats) and we expect a number of registrants from Chicago, interested classic boat owners should feel free to contact Toby directly at tlindo2@gmail.com.
