AHOY: Welcome to Northern Lights Sailing Club!

(Please pardon our construction, we are working on a new site)

Click to enlarge -- March 2016 NLSC Photo Contest Winner - Rainbow over Minnetonka - by Joan Gilmore.jpg Northern Lights Sailing Club (NLSC) is the leading recreational sailing organization serving Minnesota and neighboring states. The club was founded in 1993; today our membership comprises seasoned sailors as well as those new to the sport. The common bond between members is a love for sailing and desire for more sailing opportunities locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Many members are boat owners; many others are not. NLSC provides a monthly forum to help members increase sailing skills, plan sailing trips, and simply network with others who have the same passion for sailing.

Throughout the year, NLSC organizes several trips locally and worldwide. While members return to favorite spots year after year, the club also searches for new and exciting ports of call. Recent club destinations include:
