Overview

We are a family-owned charter sailing business. With our 40-ft. steel sailboat we take groups, individuals, families, and couples sailing on Lake Superior. We go out up to four times a day if we are not out on multi-day sails. We go to the Apostles, Isle Royale, and the South Shore of Lake Superior on multi-day expeditions.

Thank you for this Karen and good advice on the head coverings for fall sailing! It's definitely that time now, any sail from here on out will probably be a crispy fall sail.

Thanks Jesse for your comments! I'm so glad you guys brought suits. We have learned to suggest that more regularly in mid-late summer when the winds are very light. Thanks again for your recommendation and hope to see you again.
