A new Chicago sailing organization put on a show last week during the visit by International Olympic Committee evaluators. Sailing crews ran races on Lake Michigan’s choppy waters in front of the Shedd Aquarium, where IOC members were dining at the time. "The races are short, so it was perfect for them to see while they ate lunch," says sailing enthusiast Donald Wilson, founder of Chicago-based DRW Trading Group and the new Belmont Harbor-based
Chicago Match Race Center.
