JPYC has an active racing program. Racers participate in our Wednesday night “beer can” series, other club races, CASRA races, and other major regattas on the lake, including the Chicago to Mackinac race. Novices are encouraged to come crew and are always welcome on race committee.

Please contact the race committee if you have any questions about any of the races listed or would like to volunteer for the race committee.

Gratt/Raske Memorial Regatta
Gil Raske loved sailing and the camaraderie of sailors. Stan Gratt loved sailing and dedicated his life to promoting the sport to the world. Every August, we remember Gil and Stan and celebrate their enthusiasm and passion for the sport of sailing. Arrive in Michigan City on your own schedule to meet one another and the Gratt and Raske Families for a no-host dinner at the (previous) Michigan City Yacht Club, Saturday evening. Race back from Michigan City to Jackson Park on Sunday.
