Take the Wheel Program

The “Take the Wheel” program from Great Lakes Sailing Co. offers select applicants an opportunity to test sail a new Jeanneau or Gemini Catamaran at one of our boat shows, events or by appointment.  The Program allows for 1-2 hours of sailing time after a familiarization on the boat with an experienced GLSC licensed captain and/or sales representative.  Participants are encouraged to take part in the sailing aspects and can bring one person along with them.  Because of the limited availability, we can only offer this opportunity to those who are seriously considering the purchase a new Jeanneau or Gemini in the not-so-distant future.

We do not and will not give out any information to any outside entity.  All information stays within the GLSC sales department.  The sole purpose of this questionnaire to to pre-qualify applicants because of the very limited availability of the “Take the Wheel” program.

If you’d like to sail a new Jeanneau or Gemini without filling out the questionnaire, we offer charters, captain or bareboat, on various models at our Traverse City, Detroit or Chicago locations.
