This invitational regatta for college sailors is held annually out of Larchmont Yacht Club and brings together keel boat owners and young sailors for an opportunity to go head to head each Fall.

3. Great Lakes Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta at Columbia Yacht Club September 24-26, 2021

The GLIOR is an annual fall regatta that provides an opportunity for collegiate sailors to experience the excitement of offshore keel-boat racing.

Participating teams come from college sailing programs in the Midwest and beyond.  Chicago T10 & Chicago J105 fleet members provide the sailboats and are on-board during racing as a safety precaution; the collegiate sailors drive, crew the boat and manage strategy and tactics; Chicago-area yacht clubs provide facilities and the fleets provide financial support, participant gifts and awards.

The regatta consists of windward/leeward buoy races on Lake Michigan offshore of Chicago.
