Fremont in Arlington Heights. Three blocks from Arlington Heights Metra. Ample free parking.

After a brief business meeting, there will be a break for refreshments and socializing, then you enjoy a presentation by guest speaker Karl Olson of Olson's Classic Yachts about Getting Your Brightwork in Line.

While attending meetings is free, a membership application and payment of dues is required in advance of the sailing season to join us in actual sailing events planned for the 2014 season which runs from May through October with lots of weekend sails to choose from.

Dues cover your participation in all of our 20+ sails and special members-only events at no further cost. Dues are $35 for one adult 18 y.o.+ and $40 for a Family of Two adults 18 y.o.+. Application form at

NWSA members participate in sails from many Chicago harbors as well as Waukegan, Northpoint, Kenosha and Racine. We also have several special event sails such as a Moonlight Sail, Across the Lake Sail and Start of the Mac Sail. Additionally, we have trailered sails that take our members to Lake Geneva, Green Lake, Lake Mendota and Bangs Lake, among others.

Start planning now to participate in NWSA's 2014 sail season by attending our meetings, getting to know like-minded sailors and most importantly, becoming a paid member so you can join in all of our sails and special events.

Another benefit of membership is you will receive our monthly sailing newsletter. If you would like a sample, contact me with your email address.

    On a severely below-zero day like this one in January, who wouldn't want to jump-start their imagination with planning for their first 2014 sail? May would not be too soon. Hope to see lots of you at our January meeting.
