Strictly Sail Volunteers Needed

Chicago is about to freeze over and we are longing to be back on the water, but luckily theMidwest's premier sailing show is coming in January to help with the winter blues. Strictly Sail Chicago has joined forces with the Chicago Boat, Sports & RV Show for a truly spectacular event January 14-18 at McCormick Place.

Hundreds of local and national exhibitors will fill the South Hall, giving sailors the chance to previewthe latest in sailboats and equipment.   This is a great opportunity for Sail Chicago members and students to make connections in the sailing community, attend seminars, and pick up sailing gear forthe upcoming season at a significant discount .

Sail Chicago has long been part of this event and we are fortunate to have been well-represented by Volunteers at 2015 Show.

Let's make this another great year!  Volunteers will get into the show for free and will have the chance to browse exhibits or tour the boats on display before or after their shifts.   Your commitment will be just a few hours of chatting about your enthusiasm for sailing with potential new members of Sail Chicago--a pretty good deal!

Volunteer times are:

  • Thurs, Jan 14: 11am-3pm, 3-6pm or 6-9pm  
  • Fri, Jan 15: 11am-3pm, 3-6pm or 6-9pm
  • Sat, Jan 16: 10am-2pm, 2-6pm, 6-9pm
  • Sun, Jan 17: 10am-1pm, 1-4pm, 4-7pm
  • Mon (ML King Day): 10am-1pm. 1-5 pm

If you'd like to sign up, please contact Sarah Pellegrino via email.   Be sure to include "Strictly Sail" in the subject line, and indicate your 1st and 2nd time slot preferences, cell phone number, and whether you are a student, new member, or veteran sail Chicago member.

Hope to see you at the show!
