New Docks! No More Stern Lines!

2016 Docks

Little Traverse Sailors is thrilled to announce that starting in Summer 2016, our fleet will now be secured on floating docks. These new docks will make rigging and unrigging our boats much faster and safer, improve our teaching capabilities, allow our boats to be better maintained, and open up much-needed flexible space on our dock for other LTS program uses. (See the photo above for an artist’s rendering of the new docks.)

Our new state-of-the-art sailing center was made possible through major donations to LTS from James and Chase Offield, whose support for junior sailing in Harbor Springs has been longstanding and unparalleled. On behalf of our junior sailors, we thank them for their generosity, as well as their leadership and visionary support for LTS. Look for these docks to be in place as we open our operations in June 2016. LTS will host a christening event this summer to celebrate and thank our supporters. Stay tuned for more info!
