London, UK, 6th February 2013 – This summer, the famous Navy Pier in the heart of Chicago will play host to the Chicago Match Cup alongside one of Chicago’s most popular events, the majestic Tall Ships® Chicago 2013 Festival.

The east end of Navy Pier will be transformed to showcase the fourth stage of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour at the Chicago Match Cup, as well as the Tall Ships Festival, promising front-row seats, hospitality areas and live commentary to best enjoy the thrills on the water. Within the Festival area, special family-friendly activities will include Tall Ships on-board tours and sail-aways, and a fireworks display each evening.

 

Public and sailing fans are invited for a free preview day, as team practice will take place on the 6th of August. In the afternoon event, the inaugural Chicago Sports Commission Charity Sports Challenge, in which Chicago’s own athletes, will test their sailing skills (with a little help from the pro sailors) for charity.

“There will be something for everyone to enjoy during these two premier yachting events, from experiencing America’s Cup-style sailing action, to getting on board these classic yachts, not to mention the shore-side activities for the whole family to enjoy,” said Tod Reynolds, director of Chicago Match Race Center, producer of the Chicago Match Cup.

“We’re excited to bring two maritime events to Chicago’s iconic landmark,” said Marilynn Gardner, president and CEO of Navy Pier Inc. “Tall Ships Chicago and Chicago Match Cup will give our visitors from around the world the opportunity experience and board historic ships and also see the world’s top sailors at one great place – Navy Pier.”

The Alpari World Match Racing Tour consists of 8 stages spanning across 3 continents. The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) sanctions the World Tour as one of four “Special Events” alongside the America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race and the Extreme Sailing Series. It is considered as one of the most promising sailing event offering championship points and a prize money of USD1.75m – the richest in sailing competition. Ian Williams of Great Britain is the current Match Racing World Champion after winning his fourth world title in 2012.
