Sail Away Sailing School

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–and many are US Coast Guard-licensed captains–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 the Advanced Coastal Cruising course which 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 on their own boats and students' boats, and even arranges for a mix of vacation and schooling with Virgin Island courses. They also offer the ASA 104 Bareboat Chartering course which is needed to operate boats in multiple foreign countries.
