The 2014 sailing season is over
Thanks for a great season! Even though 2014 challenged us with cold lake temperatures, a big storm and a new director and senior instructor, we had a great year with 250 students attending lessons and programs.
North Coast Community Sailing (NCCS) is a part of Recreation and Fitness Resources, Inc. - a 501(C)(3) Not for Profit Organization. Our mission is to provide the community and its visitors with a non-exclusive, accessible, and welcoming place to enjoy, learn and participate in sailing on Lake Superior. We offer safe, fun and affordable sailing classes for virtually everyone. Since North Coast Community Sailing began in 2001 more than 1000 Apostle Island Area children have experienced the school's sailing and water safety program. North Coast Community Sailing is proud to offer this opportunity for youth and adults to experience sailing and the magnificent Lake Superior. Classes are led by US Sailing Association Certified Instructors.
North Coast Community Sailing (NCCS) is a small boat learn-to-sail program for the Apostle Islands area. The program is structured under the US Sailing Association, the governing body for the sport of sailing in the United Sates. NCCS was formed in 2000 with four adult volunteers who received U.S. Sailing small boat instructor training to provide volunteer sailing instruction. Fund raising allowed the purchase of two uniform fleets of boats; six Optimist Prams, and five Club 420's. The fleet has since grown to eleven Optimist Prams, seven Club 420's, one Catalina 14.2 Capri, 2 swing keelboats, and two safety boats. Currently NCCS is guided by a volunteer advisory board and employs a director and staff of instructors.
