Little Traverse Sailors has been a leader in teaching youth and adults how to sail for 55 years. All Little Traverse Sailors programs operate from the shore side facilities of the Little Traverse Yacht Club on Bay Street in Harbor Springs, MI. We operate on a weekly basis for nine weeks every summer. Our fleet consists of nine Lido 14's, six pixels, five Laser Performance Bugs, six 420's, four Boston Whaler (power) safety boats, and one 35 ft. J-105 auxiliary powered sailboat. Our staff is US Sailing, U.S. Coast Guard and Red Cross certified. Each student will be working through a ranked sequence of skills and knowledge in a systematic and highly individualized program of instruction. We also offer a "big boat" program including cruising, seamanship and navigation instruction. Adult classes and private lessons are available in both the big and small boats. This program prioritizes safety, fun and learning as the key elements of instruction. We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit community sailing program.
