sail1Lake Forest Sailing provides sailing classes and lessons taught by US Sailing Level I instructors. These courses are designed to familzaize new sailors from age eight and up with the basic theory and nomenclature of sailing in a safe, fun and hands-on enviornment. We try to keep a five to one student to instructor ration to maxime the safety, fun and learing of our junior participants.

Juniors in our program sail Prams, Optimist, Club 420s and Lasers, which are regared internationally as the ideal junior sailing trainers. These boats allow for a high level of growth and provide a perfect platform for juniors ever increasing skill levels. Sailors looking to start racing or increase their comprehension of and comfortability with tactics, rules and general sailing ability will only be limited by their own passion to grow.

Our program allows an eight-year-old  junior to enter with no experiance and continue to develop skills indefinitely. Juniors looking to race aswell as those looking to sail recreationally just for fun will find a home at Lake Forest Sailing. This is just one of the reasons we are regared as one of the best community sailing programs in the country.
