It is SYSC’s mission to cultivate an appreciation within the Sheboygan community for Lake Michigan by introducing youths and adults to the sport of sailing and helping them to develop the skills to safely and effectively crew and skipper a sailboat at a reasonable price, thereby increasing the number of sailors on the water and expanding our reach into the community. Our classes range from beginning lessons to advanced race teams for all ages and our students will develop the skills to participate in a lifelong activity that can be done on 70% of this earth. Come and set sail with us on the waters of Lake Michigan for an experience you will never forget.
