Review for Milwaukee Community Sailing Center Inc, Milwaukee, WI, USA
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.
