The goal of the GRSC Sailing School Program is to promote sailing and provide the opportunity to sail on Lake Michigan. Students will participate in at least three interactive classroom lessons taught by experienced sailors. Students will graduate to Monday Night Lite Racing with at least three on the water outings.

On the Water
After completing the classroom sessions, students will get time out on the water for some “lite” racing. You’ll get to experience time on different boats, with different skippers, and get hands-on experience sailing the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan. Our sailing school on-the-water experience takes place every other Monday starting in June and going through to the end of August, so you’ll get multiple opportunites to sail even if you can’t make every Monday night event.
Our sailing school is free to members, and you only need to be a member to participate. Join today and get ready to experience the amazing art of sailing!
Becoming a member is easy and inexpensive. Our family membership is $154 for the first year, and $129 each year you choose to renew. Click the button below to get started today!
