Sail Away Sailing School, LLC

Atop the windswept crests of Lake Minnetonka and Lake Superior, Sail Away Sailing School's instructors lead lessons for all levels. They're certified by the American Sailing Association and trained in CPR and first aid, ensuring expertise and safety during aquatic adventures. Students can gain insight into their expertise during any of the eight courses offered. At first, sailing instructors take students out for Sailing Discovery classes where they learn the basics, take the helm, and decide if sailing is for them. The next step toward captaining a vessel are the basic keelboat or cruising courses, which teach in-depth safety, motoring, and sailing techniques.

With navigation mastered, instructors let students get even more adventurous with racing techniques classes, which cover racing starts, upwind advantage, downwind strategy, and how to outrun pirating mermaids. The advanced coastal cruising course includes overnight sailing and fire safety techniques, as well as what to do if someone goes overboard at nighttime. The team also gives private instruction and even arranges for a mix of vacation and schooling with Virgin Island courses.
