Waterfront communities often create their own elaborate sailing mythologies, leading to dubious inventions such as Poseidon, the Flying Dutchman, and England. Dream up your own boating myths with today's Groupon for admission to the Strictly Sail Chicago boat show, which runs from Thursday, January 27 to Sunday, January 30. Choose from the following options:
- For $6, you get one adult ticket to the Strictly Sail Chicago boat show (up to a $15 value).
- For $12, you get a family pack to the Strictly Sail Chicago Show for two adults and two children (a $25 value).
- For $30, you get a Strictly Sail Yacht Club membership, which includes a four-day pass and access to the members-only lounge (a $60 value).
Strictly Sail Chicago, the largest indoor boat show in the United States, brings the sails to the stage for its 16th year at Navy Pier. With more than 250 global vendors, designers on-hand to answer questions, and a veritable storehouse of sailing gear, accessories, and hardware, watercraft enthusiasts will find everything they need to set aside their aquaphobic doubts and explore the beauty of sailing and the mysteries of sea legs. Sit in on one of the many seminars that are included with admission, such as Cruising the Bahamas, A Sailor Looks at Leadership, or Hey! Is That a Kraken!?—all of which are led by some of the world's leading sailors—then stop in at the sailing pond to re-create the Battle of Trafalgar with remote-control boats. Those who choose the membership option enjoy entry to the members-only lounge, which features a coat check, a cash bar, munchies, and Internet access.
More than 1,300 Facebookers are fans of the Strictly Sail Chicago boat show.
