Registration for the Learn to Sail Program

COVID-19 Update

Updated June 18, 2020

COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having a huge impact on youth programming around the country, and indeed around the world.  The State of Michigan is slowly opening and Harbor Springs is in phase 5 of the MI Safe Start Plan.

The LTS Board of Directors and senior staff have adapted our sailing program for Summer 2020, keeping the SAFETY of our sailors, staff and community as our top priority.  We are following guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of Michigan, and our local health department and government.  We are referencing best practices as outlined by US Sailing and other youth programming organizations, including smaller group sessions, an emphasis on single-handed sailing, social distancing, face coverings, enhanced cleaning and hygiene practices, and health monitoring.

Limited registration for our Learn-to-Sail program remains open although there are currently waitlists for most sessions.  Race Team applications for the 2020 season are now closed.  Private lessons for individuals on single-handed boats and families/household groups on dinghies will start as soon as possible; please contact registration@littletraveresesailors.org for sign-up information.

Our Summer 2020 Refund Policy is simple: Little Traverse Sailors will refund registration fees in full if you choose to withdraw your sailor from our program for any reason, or if we alter our sessions or are unable to operate this season.

Limited registration for Summer 2020 Learn-to-Sail is open!
