Welcome to Dauntless Sailing School

Thought about sailing, but never knew where to start? Dauntless Sailing School can help. Our focus is on adult beginners with little or no previous experience who want to discover the fun and adventure of sailing.

Why Dauntless Sailing School?
  1. A Unique, “Big Boat” Sailing Experience – All offerings are conducted aboard the sailing yacht “Dauntless,” a 28’ performance cruiser with wheel steering, standing headroom below deck, a full galley, enclosed bathroom and sleeping accommodations for five. While “big boat” is a relative term, the larger size and wheel steering makes learning to sail easier because participants do not need to worry about capsizing, a frequent occurrence with the smaller sailing dinghies commonly used for sailing instruction. Plus it’s more fun.
  2. Affordable and Accessibility – All offerings are open to the public, require no “membership,” and are affordably priced. Dauntless Sailing School believes the fun of sailing should be accessible to all income levels not just the uber-rich or the purview of exclusive, private sailing clubs.
  3. Hands on Learning – You can’t learn to sail in a classroom. Students are active participants onboard Dauntless and take part in every aspect of the sailing experience.
With three different opportunities for beginners, there is something for every temperament and level of adventurer. Offerings include:
  • Sailing Cruises on Geist (Beginners, No Previous Experience Required)
  • Adult Beginner Sailing Course (Beginners, No Previous Experience Required)
  • Adult Beginner Great Lakes Coastal Cruising (Beginners, No Previous Experience Required)
  • Regatta Participation (For those wanting to take their sailing to the next level)
  • Ocean Coastal Cruising Expedition (For the true adventurer who wants the ultimate sailing experience)
