Chicago Yacht Share

Students are in good hands with Chicago Yacht Share's Captain Norm Zable, who brings 45 years of sailing experience to his classes. Through CYS's progressive program, students can be out on the water this summer by earning their American Sailing Association credentials. They then move on to bareboat chartering opportunities aboard performance luxury cruisers. Bareboat charters allow sailors to enjoy a multitude of perks, such as never having to worry about upkeep, storage, or inconvenient mutinies. If students aren't quite ready to skipper, captained charters are also available.

Captain Norm was fantastic! For an introductory class I really feel like I got a lot of hands-on time. I will be returning for some of his more advanced classes.
