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.
