Traverse Area Community Sailing's mission is to provide sailing opportunities for the Grand Traverse Region by:

1.    Increasing participation in sailing by community youth
2.    Providing affordable sailing opportunities for community youth
3.    Promoting respect and safety on the water while having fun 
4.    Providing a participatory activity which utilizes the unique environment indigenous to this  


5.    Promoting life-long skills and life-long recreational opportunities

6.    Providing opportunities for positive involvement and instruction for community youth      

       during the summer
7.    Promoting sailing's Corinthian Spirit of Fair Play


We strive to keep our programs affordable, due greatly to a tremendous number of volunteers and donations. Parents are welcome to get involved, and we can always use extra help -- no experience necessary! Informal board meetings are held each Friday @noon in Traverse City. Monthly Board Meetings are held the second Monday of each month at the Grand Traverse Yacht Club. If you'd like to be involved, contact us at

Note To Parents: Sailing is a wholesome sport that kids can enjoy right away and the lessons of sailing last a lifetime, like self-reliance, the value of teamwork, respect for the environment and the rewards that come from challenge and competition.
