Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac®

Race Registration and Scoring System

Welcome to our updated and modernized race registration and scoring site.  To benefit from the advanced features, we recommend you use a modern browser on a recent computer, tablet, or even smartphone.  We ask you to bear with us as we add features and functionality daily.

Each user in the new system - Invited Competitor, Crew, or race administration - now have a single "User Profile" that contains basic contact information - name, email, cell phone, address, birthdate.  Login credentials for all returning competitors and crew are the email address and password you previously used for your Crew Profile login.  If you do not recall your password you can click on the "Forgot your password?" link on the login page.  If you no longer have access to the email last used in your crew profile, please email the CYC staff Regatta Manager ( for assistance.

In addition to your User profile you will have a "Dashboard" that will walk you through the steps required to participate in the race as competitor or crew.

Crew Member:  To participate as a crew member be sure your skipper has your current email address to email you the invitation via the system.  A link to accept or decline the invitation will also appear on your Dashboard.

Request For Invitation:  To enter a boat in this year's race for the first time or if you previously entered a boat but were not eligible for an automatic invitation, login and click the "Request an Invite" on your Dashboard to initiate the process.  

Request For Change:  If you received an automatic invitation to enter a boat but wish to change the boat, the division, or both, Accept the invitation.  Do not initiate a Request For Invitation. To then initiate a Request For Change,  first invite your crew members. As your crew complete the minimum number of Preliminary Crew Profiles + waivers required for each division (50% of crew, but not less than 5 for Cruising or Racing Monohull, 3 for Multihull, 2 for Doublehanded) the links below your Dashboard for submitting a Request For Change will become active.

Again, if you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to the CYC staff Regatta Manager via email:
