Make it a Getaway Special

Why Learn to Sail with Great Lakes Sailing Co.?
SailCo. Power Boats

Whether you’re reading this in May or December (we’re eternal optimists at GLSC), Northern Michigan’s sailing season is just around the corner. Summer also happens to be the busiest season for tourism and travel.

It’s no secret that July and August are pretty crazy in these parts — schools are out, festivals are in full swing and the weather is ‘somewhat’ predictable (at least as predictable as it can be in northern Michigan).

July and August are also our 2 busiest months — if you know that July and August is your window to sail, book early to guarantee the boat (or sailing class) and dates that work for you.

If you have a bit more flexibility, consider our Early Season Getaway Special before June 13.

Why sail during those dates?

  • 25% discount – well, that’s pretty cool!
  • Free Sleep Aboard the night before your charter starts ($100 value)
  • Free Late Depart so you can stay aboard the night after your charter ends and leave the next morning ($200 value)
  • Flexible cancellation policy

Why else?

  • Availability.  You’re likely to have a wider range of boats to consider sailing.
  • It’s quiet.  Anchorages, marinas, restaurants.  They’re all open.  They’re all gearing up.  But they’re not crazy busy yet.
  • Work the forecast.  Pay close attention to what Al, the weather guy,  is saying. We’ve sailed in May with 80 degree weather. Remember, this is northern Michigan. If the forecast looks favorable, give us a call and book a charter.
  • Explore.  There are all kinds of anchorages, islands and harbor towns to explore.
  • Why not?

What next?

Did you know?

  • You can fit all of the U.S. & British Virgin Islands into our cruising grounds here in Grand Traverse Bay and northern LakeMichigan?! (OK, so St Croix is not on here and the Virgin Islands run East and West, not North and South…but you get the point).
