Have a little extra fun on your trip to the harbor this year by joining us for the Skyway Yacht Works' Dash to the Dock Pursuit Race. The pursuit style race is designed to get people working on their boats and to the harbors.


Kick off the season right with a pursuit race from the Skyway yard to a finish line off the Shedd Aquarium! We will be serving breakfast and then at approximately 10:30 a.m., we will sound the starting horn and then you're on your own. Head to the harbor and enjoy your season.


Skyway Yacht Works customers and non-customers alike are welcome to join us for breakfast, a fun ride North and a party at the Columbia Yacht Club docks. Transient docking will be available during the party at Columbia Yacht Club. Since we are doing a harbor start, unless you want to traverse the NSRR bridge twice, we suggest you start from your yard

In the interest of a smooth event, Skyway Customers who wish to compete will be asked to have a battery service and engine start service completed by our staff before the event. We don't want any surprise malfunctions getting in the way of a great day on the water.
