Actually did you know we include free access to our 14 centerboards for student practice sails with our Mentors and volunteers as part of the class fee. As a member and sail pass holder this access continues, at Kent or Stony Lakes.

Speaking of Mentors Iam in the blue shirt in the video and Iam available to greet and guide you after you complete your class and start to look for practice sails on a path to your sailing adventures with ASI.
When I joined the club and took the Level one class I had already been sailing my own 20foot day sailor for 15 years. I joined more to do a “guy thing” with my brother-in-law. He had never sailed and had joined the club the year before me. And besides my kids were into there own events and crewing for dad wasnt cool any more.

And I found at once fun and willing crew members and experienced captains at ASI Sailing Club to sail with.

My brother-in-law now enjoys sailing across Lake Michigan on a friends 40foot sailing boat. We still meet up on Lake St Clair for Level 2 sails. And we’re planning to do some cruiseing out of our ASI port at Little Current in the North Channel on the Level 4 boat!

We look forward to sailing with you.

See you on the water!
