Belmont Harbor serves as the ideal racing location for the Chicago Match Race Center and the lakeshore's bleacher-style break wall provides convenient shore viewing for spectators. The center's clubhouse is located in the north part of the harbor making for a short sail to the race course. After sailing, debriefs and seminars will be held in the clubhouse.

Berntsson Sailing Team
Johnie Berntsson’s sailing team came together in 1997 and have been progressing up the match racing ladder ever since. In October 2008 Berntsson enjoyed his second career victory on the World Tour when his team captured the King Edward VII Gold Cup.
He endured a tough start to the 2011 season when he debuted as a Tour Card Holder but pulled his act together for an incredible run of form finishing second in the final two events – the Argo group Gold Cup and the Monsoon Cup. It was a bitter sweet finish to the season for the Berntsson sailing Team who would have loved to record another Tour victory however it catapulted them up the overall standings to third.
In Feb 2012 the Swedish Sailing Federation crowned skipper Johnie Berntsson and his crew “Swedish Sailors of the Year.” His plan is to win the World Championship within three years of competing as a Tour Card Holder and if he brings some consistency to his season he stands every chance of realising that goal.
