Get a head start on the rest of the Midwest by training in the spring! We will refine your boat handling skills, tactics, and understanding of the rules. Sailors are expected to have solid sailing skills and must supply their own drysuits. Students may use their own boats or charter one of ours.

Camp Awesome is our program dedicated to teaching children who have high functioning special needs. Campers ages 9 to 12 will be working with U.S Sailing trained instructors who are also trained to work with special needs sailors. This one week, half day program is highly flexible and set up to meet the needs of your child.
This is for all of our beginners out there. Using our great fleet of Vanguard Prams (the training version of the International Optimist Dinghy) your young sailor will learn the basics of sailing (points of sail, nomenclature, departure/docking) all while gaining confidence in the boat. This class has a low instructor to student ratio to maximize the amount of attention each sailor receives. Expect to take this class at least twice before moving on to Pram 2.
If you are looking for the program that really puts sailing at your child's fingertips, this is it! The course will have you tacking and gybing better than ever! The first half of the course is focused on continuing to learn the points of sail, nomenclature, rigging and de-rigging, as well as rules of the road. The second half of the program focuses on boat handling, long distance sailing, and making those basic skills automatic. We will be using our fleet of Vanguard Prams, the perfect boat for young sailors.
The goal of this course is to give kids a sense of confidence on the boat and a love for sailing and the water. There are usually two sailors in each pram, giving them a chance to meet new friends and share the fun! Sailors in this program focus on how much fun sailing can be, and will develop a good base for Pram 1
