What sailing means to us.

My name is Captain Genevieve, founder of Flathead Lake Sailing School. Now I live in Montana in the summer and Virgin Islands in the winter.


History of the school:

I grew up sailing on Flathead lake and somewhere in the back of my mind it was always there. The water and wind called to me and I found it. Next I knew it was something to be shared through our sailing school.

What can new sailors do?

There are several ways to get into the sailing community. Take a lesson and make some contacts. Ask questions. Find local racing yacht clubs and volunteer. Look into sailing forums and facebook groups. Buy a boat and get private lessons. Once you start inviting more experienced sailors aboard you will quickly see the amazing community around this lifelong sport.



Tip:

You can learn to sail, but you have to make the decision to grab the lines.




Here’s how to do it:

  1. Think about the type of sailing you might like

  2. Pick a body of water would like to learn about

  3. Find a sailing school

  4. Study all the material

  5. Practice! Practice! Practice!
