Jerry Frick, the founder of Vintage Yachting Company said, "The Chicago Maritime Festival is a very important event and weÂre happy to be a part of it. Chicago and the Great Lakes have a rich maritime history and a lot of people donÂt realize that".
Chicago has been shaped by her waterways. From the early days of the canoe to the days of sail and steam, the lives of people around the Great Lakes, and many around the world have been touched by the maritime heritage of Chicago. The Chicago Maritime Festival is an international gathering to celebrate Chicago's maritime community. It is a program organized by the Chicago Maritime Society, the Chicago Historical Society, and Common Times. The festival takes place February 26th at the Chicago Historical Society located on Clark Street at North Avenue in Chicago.
Vintage Yachting Company has set up a special page on it's website, http://www.vintageyachting.com, to accept purchases of V.Y.C. cologne from which all profits will go to support the Chicago Maritime Festival. Visitors to the site can click on the Chicago Maritime Festival logo for more information.
According to Tom Kastle, singer, sailor, songwriter and festival organizer, ÂThe Chicago Maritime Festival is the most diverse maritime program ever presented in the Great LakesÂ.
