There's a total sense of freedom and peace on the water. And often unpredictable - it can be either relaxing and/or challenging!
I've been sailing for about 4-5 years, but only seriously for the last two years. I have learned alot from NW Sailing members!
I do not own a boat.
I discovered Northwest Sailing through a friend after being disastified with the other sailing groups out there. I really wanted both a fun club and one where I could learn more about sailing. I am now on the board - it's a great group of people!
This is, by FAR, the best sailing organization I have found in the Chicagoland area! The people are nice and very accommodating. You can learn as much as you want about sailing, or simply sit on the boat and relax on the water! Last year we had over 21 events covering CHicagoland and Wisconsin harbors!
