CAN YOU REALLY LEARN TO SAIL IN THE MIDWEST?
The answer to that question is an overwhelming YES!!! The small lakes in this region consistently produce many of the country's best sailors. The protected waters of lakes like our own provide a perfect venue to learn the basics. Organized racing has been promoted for over a century in the region, providing a great network of facilities and clubs to visit and enjoy as you delve into all that the sport has to offer. Like so many other things we do here in the midwest, when sailing season comes around it's "Game On!". Don't let the best that summer has to offer pass you by. Come out and join us!
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
There are many ways to show your support and to get personally involved. Please email us if you would like to be a part of our sailing school by volunteering.
SAILING FOR EVERYONE
One of our primary aims at our sailing school is to invite new people into the sport of sailing and break down barriers, either perceived or real. Our classes start with offerings for youth ages 4 and up. We also provide introductory classes for adults and families. Sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed for an entire lifetime. It is a great way to make friends, while enjoying the natural beauty of the Chain O'Lakes.
