The 102nd Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac presented by Veuve Clicquot is the oldest freshwater distance race in the world. Sponsoring the race for the first time, Veuve Clicquot was inspired to create this short documentary in partnership with Chicago Company Fig Media (fig films).
Using all local artists, filmmakers and musicians, this 13-minute documentary covers the events surrounding the race, the traditions of champagne and celebration and stories from the sailors. Starting in Chicago and ending on Mackinac Island, The Arrival is just a taste of the passion shared by the sailing community in the Midwest; making the documentary a true love letter to both Chicago and Mackinac Island, Michigan and all who love the sport of sailing.
