The Chicago Yacht Club says the 102nd Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac is sold out at 375 paid entries.

"We are very pleased that the race continues to have such a wide appeal across the region and nationally. We are especially pleased that we could open up the race to more boats in 2010 to meet the increase in demand," said race chair Greg Freeman, in a statement.

"There are always boats that drop out and we'll do our best to accommodate as many of the wait listed boats as we can. We encourage them to submit their entries as soon as possible since the wait list will be managed on a first come, first served basis," he added.
