Welcome to the Best Sailing School on the Great Lakes.
Our passion is sailing and our goal is to share the knowledge and feeling of being under sail. Great Lakes Sailing Co. (formerly Bay Breeze) is an ASA Award Winning School with a 30 year history of introducing sailing to over 5000 sailors.

And after class, visit the many restaurants within walking distance or downtown area just a mile away. Our roster of instructors speaks for itself. Eleven certified instructors keep the classes fresh and lively. They not only know sailing but they know how to teach it in a relaxed manner.
