3rd Coast Cruising

In 2004, 3rd Coast Cruising began with a simple mission: to make sailing accessible for everyone. More than a decade later, the company has grown into a full-service sailing company while building a community of sailing and cruise enthusiasts. With instruction from USCG–licensed and certified captains, patrons receive hands-on training on areas such as navigation, how to lead a crew, and maintenance. Past students have gone on to own their boats, lead racing vessels, and even sail the world. In addition to lessons, the company offers private charters for a number of occasions. Friends and family can venture out to the water and enjoy the view of the Chicago skyline, or companies can hold a team-building exercise by booking a regatta or flotilla for a race.
