Sail Training Trip: Grand Marais to Knife River (via the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore)

Course Overview

Join us for an adventurous sail training expedition that combines the rigors of offshore sailing with the more tranquil waters of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. The trip will begin at the North House Folk School dock as we prepare for the 46-mile open water crossing to the Apostle Islands. During the crossing you will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of sailing Amicus II - from sail handling to steering to offshore navigation. Once in the Apostle Islands, we will enjoy the beaches and explore the islands and then prepare for the 37-mile crossing to Knife River. During this leg you will learn about anchoring, coastal navigation and chart reading. If all goes according to plan, we will spend the first night at the North House Folk School Dock, three nights in the Apostle Islands and cross to Knife River on the last day. Limited to four students – discounts for a group of four. Tuition includes food and lodging throughout the course. Separate tuition payment & cancellation policies apply to this course.
