Sailing Breezes offer good classes. I took the keelboat class this spring and then took the bareboat and coastal class in july. I am going to take the navigation class here in October. I have rented a tri maran on Medicine lake a couple of times from them as well. I will probably take one of the catamaran classes this spring as a way to get out of Minnesota and get a head start on my tan.
I joined the Wayzata yacht club but I did not get my membership packet until pretty much the end of the summer so I guess I will have to wait until spring to do anything with that.
Thanks for the offer on sailing. I may just send you a PM and try to set something up if I get a free moment in the next couple of weeks.

Did you ever get out onto Calhoun?
We took a class there last year and there were about 25 students and 4 instructors, so it was pretty much learning everything on your own. I took 101 from Sailing Breezes and learned much more with 3 students and one instructor. Got to do the MOB in about 25k of wind. Don't know where all the other boats were.
We are about ready to take our Telstar Trimaran off LM in about 3 weeks, so if you are out near the Shorewood Yacht Club, feel free to stop by and go for a sail with us.

|sailingfool||I'd suggest put your bike on your car, park anywhere around the lake, then hop on your bike and enjoy the ride to the club...|

Thanks for the welcome and the resources. I drove by the Calhoun YC yesterday as I was trying to find my way home. Small boats but huge fleet. I'll give them and Wayzata a try. Thanks for the tips!

not new to mn but
I am new to sailing and just passed my asa 101 class from sailing breezes. The instructor there also recomended the wayzata yacht club when I asked him about opportunities to crew. There is also the calhoun yacht club but I believe thier boats are smaller but I see them racing quite a bit in the summer. I am scheduled for a class there in june so if I find something out I will let you know.
Welcome to MN from me as well.

Welcome to Minnesota
Unfornutately, I am in the same position as you, so I do not have a boat to invite you to crew on. But, I wanted to welcome you to Minnesota. Maybe I will see you on the water this summer. Cheers!

also go to the wayzata yacht club since I believe that they have a crew board and table.

In Minneapolis looking to crew
New to Minnesota looking to crew on a boat on the local lakes or Superior. Basically just want to get on the water and daysail with someone who is looking for an extra hand and/or just share the pleasure of sailing. Happy to do the heavy lifting and cleaning up.
Experience is somewhere between clueless and intermediate but highly teachable and intelligent enough not to fall overboard or insult another person's boat. Promise not to discuss politics, religion, divorces (yours OR mine), or anything else that is a buzz killer.
Would really like to go out with someone who enjoys teaching or explaining sailing and boats and has been doing it a while. I know how to sail (onmost days), I'm pursuing the goal of learning to sail well.
If interested or know anyone who might be looking for crew please shoot me a PM and I'll return contact information. Thanks!
