Adult Sailing Schools Around Lake Michigan
You can learn to sail and at no, low, or reasonable cost! Whatever your goal, through sailing schools and programs around Lake Michigan, you can build enough skill to sail or race any sailboat anywhere. Our list includes a wide variety of programs. Some learn to sail programs are organized through yacht clubs, some through municipalities, some are private. Some just teach classes, some offer a sailboat timeshare, membership, charters, rentals or other programs to keep you sailing.
Kudos to Glenn McCarthy who created v.1 of Learn to Sail in his blog on Chicago Now in 2014: Adult Sailing Schools.
