Teaching the joy of sailing
Come Join Us!
Sailing all summer as low as $235 !
We are an energetic, enthusiastic, diverse group of sailors who want to share with you the joy of sailing, seamanship and safety on Michigan’s waterways. American Sailing Institute (ASI) has a 50 year history of teaching sailing classes and small boat safety courses. Our members sail together on our fleet of boats from three locations in Southeast Michigan.
Our Fleet of Sailboats have convenient docking privileges on Kent Lake at Kensington Metropark in Milford, MI and Stony Creek Lake at Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby Township, MI. Our larger sailboats are located at Jefferson Beach Marina in St. Clair Shores, MI on beautiful Lake St. Clair.
We hope you’ll join us for our sailing safety classes, our captains training, our small boat certification or just to enjoy a wonderful sailing experience with other members in our organization.
