The New Chicago Boat RV & Strictly Sail Show, January 14-19, 2016!

Features At a Glance


NEW! Kids' Club and Activities for the Kids

Parents—Give your kids a break!  Kids' Club is a hands-on activity center designed just for junior sailors where children can jump and bounce and slide away... Then have a seat and draw “sailboats of the future,” and build wooden sailboats to sail in the pond or take home as a keepsake of the show. 


NEW! Yacht Club Members—Be Our Guest!

We're pleased to offer reciprocal Yacht Club benefits to all yacht club members.

To take advantage of this offer, simply show your valid yacht club membership card and day of entry wristband (received with your paid admission) at the Strictly Sail Yacht Club entrance for free access and use of the Strictly Sail Yacht Club.

Discover Boating Center—Your one-stop resource for sailing information & advice!


Curious about sailing? Get started in sailing and learn how to make the most of your time on the water. Stop by and chat with a crew of friendly experts for:
    • Straightforward answers to all your sailing questions.
    • Unbiased advice on choosing a boat that suits your lifestyle and your budget.
    • Information you can trust and local resources to help you get started.

     
Sailing on a Budget? When it comes to enjoyable ways to spend your leisure time, sailing is probably far more affordable than you realize. Be sure to stop by the Welcome to the Water Center to check out our special showcase of budget-friendly boats you can finance for less than $250 per month.

When you compare the costs of boating to a single day at an amusement park or a trip to any major league game, you'll find that dollar for dollar, boating is really quite affordable. 

Start your day with a free sailing lesson.  Not ready to go out on the water? Stop by for a free sailing lesson on the new sailing simulator. An ASA certified sailing instructor will be on site to teach you the basics and get you ready to get out on the water.
