​Learn to sail with the Upper Minnetonka Sailing School!

Whether you just want a single “Is sailing really that much fun?” discovery lesson, or you’d like to gain your ASA 101 and ASA 103 certification, we have the course for you. Courses taught by instructors from the Sail Away Sailing School


2018 courses will again be offered on Lake Minnetonka!

Our 2017 Sailing Season has ended, far too early for most of us to be comfortable with! Starting in the early Spring of 2018, however, the Upper Minnetonka Sailing School and Sail Away Sailing School, LLC, will be back with our full range of courses!

Sailing Discovery

A single 3 hour course, with Sailing Discovery you’ll get the opportunity to see what sailing is really like, from the crew’s perspective. It’s a great way to determine if sailing is for you, without committing to a full certification.
