Chicago Boat Show Events at Navy Pier

Celebrating 19 years in The Windy City, the Progressive® Insurance Strictly Sail® Boat Show is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. Its scenic home at Navy Pier is only 2 miles from Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza, less than 10 minutes away by car or taxi. Taking place every year in January, Strictly Sail is an indoor "All-Sail" boat show, with fun for the whole family to enjoy. Visitors can go so far as to board boats ranging from 4 to 50 feet, check out all the newest sailing gear, attend interactive seminars, race remote control boats, and so much more. In case you get hungry, or need to get your mind back on dry land, Navy Pier is also host to a lovely selection of restaurants and boutique shops for strolling.
