Learn to sail at 3rd Coast Cruising and You Can Sail Anywhere!
We are Chicago's fastest growing Sailing School and Club. Our USCG licensed captains and certified instructors are knowledgeable, experienced and patient. You start to sail on a larger (30 foot or more) yacht, with a reliable inboard motor from 8 different manufacturers, giving you sailing skills that are easily transferable to other boats.
At 3rd Coast Cruising we have a passion for sailing, and it is our goal to share that passion with you. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, 3rd Coast Cruising puts the casual elegance of sailing within your reach.
