A Chat with Chicago Yacht Share
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
100%.of Groupon survey respondents would recommend my Basic Introduction To Sailing Class to a friend.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Before you attend the Basic introduction To Sailing Class, watch my free e-online class on my website. Click the “Lessons” tab (2nd paragraph) where it says “Here”.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I’ve been sailing since I was 15. It’s fun to take people that have never sailed. When they find out how much fun it is, they want to learn more. Sailing is one of the few hobbies that the whole family can enjoy together..
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy it when Basic Intro students take my more advanced classes. And when they purchase a Share Plan so they can sail the boat without me, there’s a definite feeling of accomplishment.

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.
