We teach people of all ages skills they need to have fun sailing.

 

Few things in life give a greater sense of accomplishment and confidence than sailing your own boat — and few are as exhilarating or rewarding than piloting your own sailboat, whether leisurely harnessing the wind, challenging a heavy wind, or competing in a sailboat race.

At Crooked Lake Sailors (CLS), teaching philosophy focuses on empowering our students to take risks.  We breed resilient, independent, and capable sailors by allowing new sailors to struggle and make mistakes in a fun and safe learning environment with help and encouragement nearby. Traits learned in this way will help our students succeed in every aspect of their lives!

Youth Classes Start June 25!

We offer Youth and Adult Group Classes


Reserve your spot!

  • online

  • over the phone

  • in-person on the first day of classes

To ensure student safety and instruction quality, strict class size limits are in place, and preference is given first come first served. Many classes are filled well in advance, so we recommend reserving your place as early as possible. We are excited to offer multi-week discounts and scholarships — contact us for more information!

Youth classes run June 26 – August 11, 2017 in week-long sessions for students aged 9 – 18. Beginners tend to find the calmer morning winds more comfortable, so first-timers are encouraged to sign up for morning classes. However all students are welcome in both classes.

Private lessons are also available upon request.
