SA’ers and the fun amongst Strictly Sail Chicago attendees can once again rely on Friday night’s umpteenth Winter Anarchy party and Lizzie McNeil’s ; We’re loading up the SA truck with kegs of Chicago brew pub Goose Island’s tasty beverages, and just ten bucks buys you as much of their ale or wheat as you can swallow from 9 PM til they run out (about 3 hours last year). Be sure and say hello and thanks to Bobby Hillier at the Line Honors Yacht Racing Outfitters booth and check in with the huge Crowley’s Yacht Yard/Store arena in gratitude for their beer subsidy, and check out www.gosailingchicago.com while you’re at it.
Speaking of the show, Clean and Mer are running over Thursday and Friday to offer you something we’ve never really done before; using Sailing Anarchy’s Facebook Page, they will walk you on a video and photo tour through the show, putting up as many interviews and boat tours and product ‘first looks’ as they can manage in a day and a half. You don’t need to be a Facebook member to watch any videos on SA’s page, either. You just have to own a computer with a browser and go here.
