Leave the Cold - Learn to Sail Somewhere Warm This Winter

Leave the Cold - Learn to Sail Somewhere Warm This Winter

While you can to learn how to sail on Lake Michigan in many places during the summer, a winter get-away to Florida, California, or the Caribbean can get you the sailing skills now.  So when summertime comes to Chicago, you are ready to go sailing on your own.

This means that rather than the usual vacation hunting for things to do daily, your week will be planned out with intensive schooling each day which will be a blast.  You’ll come back tanned, with new skills, having had fun, and a fresh outlook on life.

Have your friends, co-workers, family or neighbors talked about doing this?  Send them this story.

This is not a comprehensive list of schools, just a quick list I pulled together.  If you want to go to a specific town that isn’t on this list, I would recommend Googling the words: “Sailing School My Vacation Town” or “Learn to Sail My Vacation Town.”  I suspect this list has only 2/3 of the total number of schools available in the regions –
