The NMU Sailing Club puts Northern Michigan’s largest natural resource to good use. Based out of Lower Harbor, the Sailing Club sets sail on Lake Superior in both the fall and spring seasons. The racing members compete at regattas across the Midwest under the Midwest Collegiate Sailing Association (MCSA) a regional denomination of the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA). The team welcomes students who have no sailing experience, but would like to learn. "Recreational Member" status is available for those who don't yet feel comfortable racing.
Dues are $75 annually for recreational members and $150 annually for racing members. These costs cover Marquette Yacht Club membership, regatta fees, boat maintenance, MCSA dues and dock usage. Members are also required to purchase a PEIF pass for the year.
Participants Must Supply:
PFD, wetsuit and/or drysuit for sailing dates after October.
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana, and Iowa.
Tentatively Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays
(Saturday being a casual sail day)
No experience required. The club will teach you everything you need to know. Before heading out on the water, participants must successfully complete a treading water test.
