The Sailing School

We have offered sailing lessons on Lake Pepin for over 12 years in conjunction with the American Red Cross.

Sunfish Sailboats

Learn to sail on Sunfish sailboats. The Sunfish is a small, beach launched sailing dinghy fiberglass hull carrying a lateen sail mounted to an un-stayed mast. You learn to what all this translates to your first day!

Seasoned Sailors

Each class is made up of enough instructors to usually provide one-on-one sailing instruction out on the water.

Loads of Fun

You'll spend half a day in the class room, the rest of the time will be spent out on the water where you will get to put your new-found knowledge to practice. This is where all the fun happens!

Join the more than 35 sailors who have participated in these local classes beginning in 2012 and continued every year since. This is a fantastic way to gain both classroom knowledge and on the water instruction to give you the confidence in the finer arts of sailing.
