DETROIT COMMUNITY SAILING CENTER
AT THE BELLE ISLE BOAT HOUSE
The Detroit Community Sailing Center has been created from the expansion of the long running Challenge the Wind Youth Sailing Program. It includes added adult and family programs to broaden our community reach. Our mission continues unchanged:
Making Detroit’s waterfront and sailing accessible to those who otherwise may not get the opportunity
Detroit Community Sailing Center is open to the public. We are located at the historic Belle Isle Boat House on Detroit’s picturesque Belle Isle. Participants can enjoy Detroit’s waterways and learn to sail without the cost and time commitment of boat ownership. Instructors, with years of experience, will teach using our fleet of Optimist, Club 420s, Flying Scot, Interlake and RS-21 sailboats.
In addition to reaching a larger community, this expansion will help sustain the viability of our youth program. We are a non profit 501(c)(3).
