Description

Being out on Lake Michigan in the summer is an immensely special place with extraordinary views of the city of Chicago. Do you spend time on other people's boats or want to? Have you seen the sailboats racing and wondered how could you do that? If you would like to learn what you need to know to help out, to fit in, what makes a key crew member, and/or how you can meet skippers and get started racing, then this is the program for you!

This 6 week on land / indoor training program, taught by passionate sailors and skippers, will teach you what it takes to become a valued crewmember so you can improve your on water experiences for you and your skipper whether you are interested in cruising or joining a racing program.

Topics will include: Nautical Terminology, Behavior on Board, Crew Roles & Responsibilities, Weather & What to Wear, Personal & Boat Safety Equipment, How to Avoid Rookie Mistakes, Rules of the Road, and more. Hands-on Demo's include knot tying, proper winching, sail folding, spinnaker packing, and an outdoor boat demo.

Not only will we introduce you to the many opportunities for sailing & racing on Lake Michigan, we host a Skipper Meet & Greet on our final evening of the program where you will meet the skippers who are actively looking to add to their crew ranks for the 2019 Season!

Once you complete this program, you will be ready to join our 4 week Adult Sailing School. Graduates of The Sailing Crew Training Program are eligible for a $100 enrollment discount to our Adult Sailing School, as well as the opportunity to join our yacht club for the year at our Crew Member rate!
