Event Information


Crew U is a seven-week program that begins in May and ends in June. This class is led by members of the Chicago Yacht Club who offer their boats and wisdom to help you get the skills you need to crew on a boat. The course includes some classroom instruction, but the vast majority is taught on the water. The classes are held on Tuesday nights, and many students get additional practical experience racing on offshore boats during Wednesday night racing. If you are interested in being part of yacht racing on Lake Michigan, this is a great way to up your experience and build relationships that may yield a position all summer long on one of the boats. 

The goal of the Crew U course is to prepare students to crew on offshore racing boats. For the past 15 years, Crew U has taught adults with limited or moderate sailing experience everything that they need to know to start crewing on most racing boats. The majority of the class takes place on-the-water and has a hands-on focus. Rigging, sail trim and teamwork are among the skills covered.

Crew U classes meet once a week for seven weeks at Monroe Station. Students have additional opportunities to sail on Wednesday nights starting in June. Students should expect to be on the water.
