hazy shade of winter

winter anarchyNext Friday is the 8th Annual Winter Anarchy party! With the demise of Strictly Sail Chicago, the party will be held on Friday, January 16 of the Chicago Boat, RV & Strictly Sail Show – a mouthful if you ask me.

The biggest midwinter party in the region has flocked to a new location – Goose Island, home of our favorite beer! Also new for 2015, Winter Anarchy has a beneficiary for the first time ever – The Skin Cancer Foundation – with a goal of raising $2,500 for a cause that affects all of us outdoorsmen. Just $20 will get you an open pour of Goose Island Beer and Mount Gay Rum from 9pm until it’s gone.

And of course, we’ll have our famous prize toss and raffle. Prizes include: $500 to Sea Hawk Paints, 2 crew school registrations at Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club, gifts from Line Honors and Sailing Anarchy softshells. We would also like to thank: Crowley’s Yacht YardThe Chicago RegattaPettit Paint and Skyway Yacht Works.

Title thanks to The Bangles.
