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 salboat race.






ALL EVENTS AND CLASSES ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Many thanks for a great season with a record number of students, and to all who participated in the Poker Run, and who donated an item or bid in the Silent Auction.  
 
Plans are being made for the 2017 season.

Call Margie at 231-838-7775 for information on how you can make a tax deductible donation of your little used boat.

Northern Michigan has been a sailing mecca for over a century.   The Crooked Lake Sailors first offered sailing lessons on Crooked Lake in the 1980's and the program was re-established in 2012.  Crooked Lake is ideal for sailing since compared to Lake Michigan, it is warmer and has smaller waves.   And unlike the usual prevailing west wind on Little Traverse Bay, Crooked Lake's often very changeable winds present a  wide variety of conditions.  As a result, if you learn to sail on Crooked Lake, you can sail just about anywhere.
