What we're about

I ❤️ Sailing Alliance
Sailing attracts adventurous, enthusiastic people! Want to sail regularly or explore whether sailing could be your new passion? Come join our Alliance.

Whether you are a boat owner or a crew member, we have a place in our Alliance registry for you. Crew are rotated through as many positions as possible to gain familiarity and learn vessel operation. As a captain, you need to be willing to share knowledge and experiences. Sailing along the open water with friends clears your mind and lets you live in the moment. Be it cruising or racing, we have a sailing experience just for you!

Meet & Greets - Socializing is important to the sport. During the off-sail season, join us for area boat shows, sailing conferences and nautically-themed bars and restaurants from Chicago to Milwaukee. During the sailing season, events include Full Moon Sails, Sip & Sail, Air & Water Shows, Boat Yard Days, Across Lake Michigan trips and many more activities.

I ❤️ Sailing Alliance supports Alliance for the Great Lakes, the oldest and largest citizens environmental organization dedicated to the protection of the Great Lakes. The water we enjoy while sailing. For more information visit www.greatlakes.org. For each sailing event in which you participate, we ask that you contribute by sending your donation of $20 to Alliance for the Great Lakes.
