Women's Architectural Boat Tour
Tuesday, June 7 - 6 p.m.-10 p.m. at Monroe Station
ABC...History in the Making
Architecture, Boats and Chicago
Please join us on Tuesday, June 7th for a Women's Committee fundraising dinner and Architectural Boat Tour as we kick off the America's Cup World Series week on the right course.
Join Chicago Yacht Club members Sally Barkow and Maggie Shea of TeamMagenta32 as well as America's Cup historian Steve Tsuchiya for a memorable Ladies' Night Out fundraising event.
This special evening starts at 6:00 pm at CYC Monroe Station with dinner prepared by Chef Larry and talks given by our distinguished guests.
After dinner, at 7 p.m., we will board 3 powerboats, generously donated by Pinnacle Yachts where we will enjoy wine and dessert. The cruise will head out to the America's Cup race course off of Navy Pier and then proceed to the Chicago River. Each boat will have one of our notable speakers on board as well as an architect or docent to narrate/educate us on our amazing Chicago skyline. The boats will return to the Monroe docks by 10 p.m.
This fundraising event will directly benefit Team Magenta32 which is the first all-female team skippered by Sally Barkow, to receive the tour card on the World Match Racing Tour (WMRT). Proceeds will go to Team Magenta32 who is focused on producing results at the highest level of professional match racing and furthering The Magenta Project's objective of promoting equality by proving that females are as competitive as their male counterparts, even in physically demanding boats. They further support inclusion, diversity and positive female role models in the society at large.
This exclusive event has very limited seating, therefore we are limiting RSVPs to women (member or spouse) of CYC. Please reserve your spot today. The total cost of the event is $300 (see below for tax deductible information).
Your tax deductible donation of $225 (or more) will help cover racing and travel costs for the team to continue to compete in the WMRT events.
