The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center is an excellent asset to the city. Using its wonderful facilities on the water, this nonprofit reaches out to the community to teach many life skills through the art of sailing. These skills include physical development,social interaction,intellectual challenges and appreciation of the natural environment.
Encouraging and helping members with these skills is a friendly and positive staff. The entire sailing community supports new students and provides social settings frequently to help new members become part of the community. Milwaukee is fortunate to have this wonderful sailing center.
This is a great community to be part of. Both for learning to sail, as well as a gateway to a wider sailing community.
The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center 's mission is to bring the joy of Lake Michigan to all people. To that goal the Sailing Center provides affordable lessons and scholarships for children and teens, as well as a complete range of on-the-water and classroom learning experiences for adults. With the insistence on safety first, MCSC provides the boats, the docks, the staff and the programs to help ANYONE learn how to sail competently. All one needs is a willingness to learn and an aptitude to have a good time. The emphasis on Community means no one who wants to sail is left at the dock. Friendships abound. MCSC provides volunteer opportunities to share sailing with children and adults with disabilities and other challenges. A full schedule of classes, events, social gatherings and volunteer options is available all year round. One can learn about the history of sailing for exploration, commerce, military use, for travel and sport; one can learn about ghosts, legends and ship wrecks, about environmental and conservation concerns and much more. I knew nothing about sailing when I took my first class several years ago. Now I have a passion not only for sailing itself but for helping achieve the mission of the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center--to share the joy of Lake Michigan.
MCSC is the best place on Lake Michigan to learn sailing and to learn about the lake. Their staff is top notch and the location is first rate. Probably the best thing is the cost. It is very reasonable for the services they offer and the access to their facility on Lake Michigan.
I am a member and volunteer to learn and teach safe sailing and share the sailing experience with many non-sailors in the Milwaukee area for whom this is their best and maybe only way. Excellent programs, activities, classes and best of all staff. AND Boats, too! The new facility sets the tone for a first class experience.
A great way to sail - Instructors are knowledgable, levelheaded and fun! I cant imagine any other way to get into sailing.
The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center makes Lake Michigan accessible to anyone! I love that there are a variety of courses offered at different times, making it easy to learn to sail or improve one's sailing abilities. I also love the camaraderie: the community members and staff are welcoming, patient, and, importantly, love to sail themselves.
A real community a sailors excited about sharing the lake and lakefront. Youth lessons, rides for disabled sailors, group and individual sailing opportunities.
Truly a community center! Anyone and everyone should learn to sail at MCSC! And all ages! There is a class for every ability and boats for every ability. Start easy and you'll be amazed at what you'll learn. MCSC is the best bargain around. No, you don't need own your own boat, MCSC has them. Many a lifelong friend has been made hanging around the MCSC docks and boats. I dare you to try it out!!!
