Cutting out through Southport Marina and onto the open water of Lake Michigan, the sloops of Red Sails Charter & Sailing Lessons are impossible to miss. Aboard the beautifully maintained Panache, students or Captain Richard Charette can trim the classic boat's signature crimson sails. Under the tutelage of Captain Richard, newbie sailors learn skills such as flying the spinnaker, steering, and the best wind position for hair whipping. Charters are also available for those who want to kick back on the boat while the crew mans the deck.
Refreshing zephyrs glide off freshwater lochs and onto SkipperBud's, an all-purpose marina on the shores of Lake Mendota. New and used boats from high-end brands such as Starcraft and Sea Ray bob beside the sprawling facilities, where savvy salespeople bring decades of know-how to the 40-year-old company. Engine parts, safety tackle, and watersports equipment are also on hand, as are adept boat mechanics trained to tinker on most boat models and engine types. Indoor storage facilities fend off the icy barks of Old Man Winter, and, in the summer, make for easy access to Lake Mendota's launch points.
