Publish date:

Nautic-On, a division of Brunswick Corporation, is teaming with the Chicago Yacht Club as a sponsor of the club’s 2018 summer event series. Taking place at the club’s Monroe and Belmont locations, the series features events including the Power & Sail In-Water Tech Show.

Scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, the tech show focuses on the latest technology, style and design in power and sailing yachts. It will offer seminars and demonstrations for attendees. The show will start at the Chicago Yacht Club Monroe station Friday at 3 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. and the Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We are excited to support the Chicago Yacht Club’s In-Water Tech Show,” said Adam Schanfield, Nautic-On general manager, in a statement. “This event stimulates excitement, knowledge and participation in boating by focusing on how technology has made boating better and easier. This is a natural partnership for us as this community has played a prominent part in helping us define how we can leverage smart boating technology to improve the boat-ownership experience. As a Chicago business, we are proud to support the local boating community.”

Added Jay Kehoe, Chicago Yacht Club on-the-water director, “Marine technology products at the in-water tech show are the best and brightest, seeing them in the winter shows is good, but actually seeing the product work in the water is a great opportunity for boaters of all types.”
