Our on-board 3-5 day sailing adventures are based in the small northern Michigan town of Northport, where we return to the beautiful, clean, safe marina every evening after a leisurely day of learning to sail. Our group of 5 young sailors meet and share their experiences. The captain teaches the lessons outlined below while the counselor and crew maintain a balance of fun, food, and leisure. A cookout in the evening or a bonfire caps the day.
The sailing topics covered include:
The following video shows why we feel a need to give back to the Gold Star families who have lost a loved on in service of our country.
