Who we are

Program we are offering is a series of empowering experiences, which allows boys and girls and adults to do great things on their own. In each of our classes
students will find meaningful opportunities for building self-confidence and
self-discovery. From our beginning lessons to our advanced racing team
lessons the classes offer skills and memories for a lifetime. Topping
it off is the backdrop of our beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline.

Our mission is to assist youth and adults to learning to sailing and water
safety at a reasonable price, and cultivate an appreciation of our natural
resources and birthright, the waters off Sheboygan , Wisconsin.

We teach tactics and techniques designed to teach the fundamentals in starting races, sailing up wind, sailing down wind, long distance racing and teamwork. When on the SYSC Youth Sailing Team, there are around 3 regattas we attend each summer. The main goal of the race team is to have fun, and become a part of a team and the sailing community.

You can save $150.00 by volunteering 30 hours over the course of the summer!! You can help the instructors clean boats, repair boats, and help out with classes as well!
