Connamara Systems to Sponsor the 37th Annual Chicago Sprints Regatta

Connamara Systems, co-originator of the industry standard open-source QuickFIX FIX engine, is proud to be a major sponsor of the the 37th Annual Chicago Sprints Regatta.  With Connamara’s headquarters in Chicago, Connamara is pleased to again support the venerable local institution, Lincoln Park Boat Club.  

The Chicago Sprints Regatta is one of the largest competitive regattas in the region, drawing junior, collegiate and masters programs from throughout the Midwest. The Chicago Sprints continues to be the largest sprint-season regatta in the Midwest, and among the top five largest non-collegiate sprint regattas in the nation. In 2016, the regatta was host to more than 1,000 athletes, fielding entries from 27 clubs from 10 states. Additionally, it is attended by hundreds of casual and dedicated spectators who line the 1000 meter course situated between Lake Shore Drive and the Lincoln Park Zoo. The Chicago Sprints features 1,000-meter, side-by-side, Henley style racing which makes for some great competition.
