This was our 1st time sailing and it was an awful experience, which ended with the sailboat crashing into the breakwater rocks and requiring a mayday rescue by another boat having to tow the sailboat back to the marina. According to our instructor Jackson the winds were heavy "black flag " no other sailboats were on the lake except for 1 other sailboat also from the community sailing center. After we were given an explanation that the second sail would provide greater wind power and the sail was raised, he lost control of the boat and crashed us into the rocks ! This was absolutely a horrifying experience and I feel that our safety was jeopardize. Also we received a very insincere apology

There staff is rude and has no regard for human safety. It was a extremely windy day we went I called first to make sure it was still on. The instructor lost control of the sail boat and crashed us into the rock wall and had to have a rescue boat.

Great intro to sailing, a little classroom & theory and a lot of hands on. A great experience that you won't get on an inland lake. Everyone had ample time to practice basic maneuvers and knowledgeable and patient instructor made for a memorable time.

From Our Editors

In 1977, a group of Milwaukee’s sailors responded to its city’s lack of a public sailing institution by banding together with county officials to create a not-for-profit organization accessible to everyone. The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center has continued to uphold this original vision of granting everyone—regardless of age, physical ability, or financial means—a chance to develop sailing skills while exploring Lake Michigan’s aqueous expanses. Since its founding, it has imparted its knowledge upon upwards of 100,000 student via hands-on classes and private lessons.

Throughout the summer’s balmy months, Milwaukee Community Sailing Center’s experienced and certified staff can be found reviewing boat safety with students during on-shore lessons or calling out instructions to their trainees from within a sailboat cruising around the lake. As winter’s frigid winds rage across the city, a host of off-season winter sessions enables skippers to keep their sea legs toned until spring returns. Bobbing cheerfully in the onsite marina, the center’s seaworthy fleet is comprised of more than 80 meticulously maintained vessels, including sturdy dinghies, cruisers, and saddled-up krakens. The center’s dedication to bringing the community together on the water is further evidenced in its outreach programs, including one designed to help Milwaukee’s at-risk youth turn a new leaf by helping them uncover hidden talents, develop leadership skills, and conquer their fears.
