Includes staying aboard one evening and sailing the next day. This is a less formal experience than the Catamaran Course featured below but does offer a brief orientation of the Gemini Catamaran before setting sail. Enjoy a private cabin aboard a new Gemini Catamaran and then cast off late morning for a 2-hour sail. In the evening, the catamarans will be docked in our marina and connected to shore power. You’ll have access to 110v/12v power, electric heaters and will have full access to our boaters lounge with sofas, kitchen, flat screen, private showers and bathrooms. The Great Lakes Sailing Co. / CenterPointe Marina is surrounded by restaurants and is just a short drive to the beaches, shops and wine tasting the area has to offer.
