CAN YOU LEARN TO SAIL IN THE MIDWEST? The answer to that question is an overwhelming YES! The small lakes in our region consistently produce some of the country's best sailors. The protected waters of our lakes provide a perfect venue to learn the basics of sailing, not to mention the racing opportunities that also exist, allowing you to learn and hone your racing skills. Don't let the best that summer has to offer pass you by. Come out and join us. See you on the water!
IS SAILING FOR EVERYONE? One of the primary aims of our sailing school is to introduce people to the sport of sailing and break down barriers, either perceived or real. Our classes start with offerings for youth age 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.
