Chris Garbacz began racing in 2005 after attending CCYC's (Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club) Crew School Program. Sixteen years later, she has raced thousands of miles of local and long distance races including ten Chicago and seven Bayview Mac Races. In 2016, she was thrilled to race in both the Conch Republic Cup Regatta (Key West to Cuba) and the Heineken Regatta in St. Maarten. Chris was an instructor for CCYC’s six-week Crew School program from 2008-2014. This spring marks her seventh year since taking over the helm of the program. Garbacz and her team successfully train dozens of new crew each spring for Chicago area skippers who are looking to fill out their summer crew ranks. 2021 marks a new adventure for the program, which went virtual this year, expanding into online offerings and a record 55 Attendees!
