Come Get Your Feet Wet - Introductory Sailing Lesson
BYOB Sailing in Chicago. We have trained 1000's of sailors over the years, many have even advanced to getting their Captain's License. Our methodology may be a bit unorthodox because we believe a truly competent sailor is made through experience and sea time not because they have a piece of paper saying they are certified. Learning how to sail by experiencing many unique situations as we teach you not only how to sail but how to teach others how to sail; this is where my club excels! Bottom line, make sure whatever sailing school you join, you have fun while you learn! Our mission is to train sailors who have the skills, knowledge and confidence to safely skipper a boat in any situation. And since many of our students go on to become boat owners, this goes well beyond learning the mechanics of sailing. Learning about the mechanical/electrical systems as well as the different components that come together to make the boat run are also an extremely important aspect of being a well-rounded, Self-Sufficient Sailor. Knowing what to do when things don't go according to plan is essential to a safe and enjoyable journey. For students interested in making the most of their sailing education, you can spend more time on the water and have the chance to get involved in: Situational and Scenario Training Heavy Weather Sailing Tutorials in Electrical/Mechanical repairs Repairs and Maintenance both on and off season Celestial Navigation
When we started 3rd Coast Cruising in 2004, there was a guiding principle that motivated us: to make sailing accessible and affordable to everyone, not just the rich and famous. Initially, the business revolved around Private Sailing Charters but has since grown into a full service sailing outfit offering Sailing Lessons, Caribbean Charter Trips, Bareboating and Large Group/Corporate Events. We embrace change, so we will always continue to offer fun new ways for our Students and Guests to enjoy the sailing lifestyle. The true wind in our sails is our retention rate. Year after year, our students and guests return to share this amazing adventure with us. And some of our best students complete the circle by getting their USCG Captain's License and becoming 3rd Coast Certified Instructors. Having previous students who believe in our program so much that they want to come back and get more involved is the biggest compliment we could hope for. Throughout all the growth and change, one thing will always remain the same: our commitment to providing the best sailing experience possible. Whether it's Lessons or Cruising, Local or Tropical - we want you to love sailing as much as we do and will do our best to make sure you have a great time!
