Quantum Distance Race Series Championship

Distance racing has long been a tradition on the Great Lakes and this year Quantum has teamed up with CASRA to name a distance racing champion.

Quantum is excited to sponsor the 2017 Quantum Distance Race Series Championship and support CASRA in their mission to foster sailboat racing in the Chicago area with seminars, debriefs and coaching. The Quantum Distance Race Series Championship will take place throughout the summer of 2017 and will crown the top performer in three of the five listed distance racing events. 

HOW IT WORKS

Participation in the Quantum Distance Race Series Championship is free for all racers participating in the qualifying events; however, participants are responsible for registering for each individual regatta and the associated fees.
