This is a collection of inspiring interviews from the 2012 North American Challenge Cup.
The Chicago Yacht Club's North American Challenge Cup (NACC), was held at Belmont Harbor on August 3 -- 6, 2012. The first NACC regatta was in 1992, and while a lot has changed over the past twenty years, the regatta still remains a wonderful opportunity to compete on the race course and to enjoy the camaraderie of seeing old sailing friends and making new friends as well.
The NACC regatta has grown over the past twenty years, from its inaugural year in 1992 with racing in only one class, the Freedom 20s, to the addition of two Paralympics class sailboats, the one-person 2.4mR and the three-person Sonar. In past years the NACC regatta has hosted competitors from around the globe, including many Paralympics medal winners. It is considered to be one of the "must do" regattas in the disabled racing circuit. This event is one of the premier disabled sailing regattas, and counts as one of the longest running events in the North American disabled sailing circuit.
