NLSC Sailing

This is a listing of upcoming Sailing Opportunities and Club Trips

 

Our trailerable trips range in duration from one day, a weekend, or longer – they take place on lakes within a “short” drive from the Twin Cities. Overnight trips often include lodging arrangements, from camping to condos to casinos.

We also get together to charter “bareboats” (i.e. we don’t hire a captain; we do it ourselves), renting boats all over the world on trips lasting from a weekend (in the Twin Cities area) to a week or two (in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Pacific – in just about any ocean we want to sail in).

The planning and execution is all handled by volunteers (to keep the costs manageable) – please contact the NLSC Trip Chair if you would like to help.

Don’t worry: Experienced sailors will help you organize and execute these trips – a great way to pick up sailing organizational skills and experience. Many of us have started with these trips and now can charter and handle the big boats by ourselves – that’s because our experienced sailors will teach you what they know, and you will be expected to participate in all of the fun, pleasures and chores of sailing. (These trips generally are not cruises where you just sit back and enjoy the ride.)

For Information or to sign up: CONTACT THE TRIP LEADER(S). Please send all checks directly to the trip leaders. Contact information is available to NLSC members in our membership directory – log into the members-only section of this website.
