Sorry... Dan is it..?

That's what I was looking for ...I had seen the Apostle Isle discount for students, I just had'nt checked out the "club privilege" on Lake Minnitonka...

Is that a good size lake for sailing on...?

Looking at the map, I'm much closer to Bayfield...

Its all good Squidd. Minnetonka is OK, the north side of the lake is pretty good size, there can be lots of boats on it during the weekends. You do have to dodge other boats some times. Stay off the lake 4th of July weekend as it is just insane out there. You can sail around Big Island, gets a little narrow in spots. There are a few racing clubs on there too. Ones I know that are well organized come out of Wayzata Yacht Club and Minnetonka Yacht Club.

Its nice to to get out during the week if you can. Start at 4 and most folks are still at or on their way home from work, have the lake pretty much to yourself. Another nice thing about being in the boat club is you get 20% off charters in Bayfield, 10% if you have been a student of NBSS. Of course it is probably a bit of a drive for you to sail on Minnetonka coming from Wisconsin. Feel free to PM me any other questions or anything.

Re: On Line Sailing School

Hi people above were asking about NauticEd online classes and if they were recognized. Virtually all yacht charter companies globally recognize NauticEd classes and we work with many sailing schools as well.

Re: On Line Sailing School

I've done a few of the Nautic Ed courses on line, reached "Qualified Crewman" and working on "Skipper" status...

What's nice is even after you read the material and take the test, you are allowed to go back and review the material and take the test again if you want as many times as you like...
