Intro To Sailing

Not Sure Sailing Is For You?

Chicago Sailing’s Introduction to Sailing is the fast and affordable way to discover the world of wind and water. In this 2-hour on-the-water session you will not only enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan, you will actually operate a modern sailing keelboat. Our professional instructor will introduce you to the basic sailing theory, boat handling, and nautical terminology. By the time you return to the dock, you have acquired a new appreciation for this elegant sport and your transformation from a landlubber to an old salt will be well underway.
