Get Active on this Educational Sailing Adventure!
Ahoy! Join us for an exciting educational adventure aboard the Tall Ship Windy! Great Lakes history and maritime tradition come alive from the decks of our floating classroom with Windy’s Tall Ship Discovery Sail (TSDS) for sail training.
This unique, hands-on learning experience is a great way to enjoy physics, ecology, history, and storytelling while taking an active part in sailing the vessel.
Watch the kids’ faces light up with excitement as they turn theory into practice, have real fun, and get educated along the way. Just get in touch to schedule your dates.
Join in on a scheduled sail! Sometimes, our local school and youth groups book the boat but there are spots left over – you can join in!
