Sailing Deals in Milwaukee
Milwaukee is a favorite port stop for those sailing the Great Loop, but you don't have to circumnavigate the eastern portion of North America to learn to sail when Lake Michigan is your personal playground. Join the Sailing Club at UWM and begin a nautical adventure with five one-hour sailing lessons for $140 (a $299 value). You'll learn to steer a boat with confidence as you execute the come-about (turn when heading toward the wind), jibe (turn when heading away from the wind and then make full circles), and person-over-board maneuvers as well as approach and leave docks under different wind conditions -- all while enjoying the vast expanse of your favorite Great Lake. You don't even need to be a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student to set sail for this 53%-off deal.
Sailing lessons teach you to navigate choppy waters or awkward conversations during unnaturally still waters.
