Welcome To The Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac Weather Data Portal

Welcome to your free Weather Support Portal brought to you by Sailing Weather Service. From here you will be able to view current and archived weather data, forecast products, and download free high-resolution processed GRIB data (SmartGRIBS®). Enjoy!

 

Sailing Weather Service is offering free downloads of historical weather for every CYC Race to Mackinac since 1990 up to 2012.

Improve your race strategy by sailing through over 20 years of races. This "retrospective racing" is a technique performed by many elite offshore racers to tune the performance of their boat and advance their racing knowledge. Now you can prepare like the elite.

The SWS CHIMAC data-set is in GRIB format, and can be imported easily into marine weather and routing applications.

Sailing Weather Service is making the data below available free of charge. The free GRIB data is without any warranty and is unsupported by Sailing Weather Service. The data is intended for personal use only and redistribution is explicitly prohibited. Please credit Sailing Weather Service when publicly using this data and respect the honor system so that Sailing Weather Service can continue offering these complementary data-sets.
