The Club Where Members Set Sail
The Northern Lights Sailing Club was founded in 1993 to provide affordable opportunities for sailing trips, education, and fellowship for sailors of all experience levels. Whether you have are the saltiest of sailors or have never been on the water but feel the urge, NLSC is the right place for you. Our members are mainly in the Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area, but we have members from all over who are interested in our trips.
NLSC is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization entirely run by its members. The glue that binds us is our love of sailing and a desire for more sailing opportunities, whether they be convenient local lakes or exotic global destinations.
But sailing isn’t everything. In addition to our nautical jaunts, NLSC hosts a variety of high quality social activities including monthly meetings that feature educational presentations. The meetings also allow NLSC members to rub shoulders, swap stories, improve their sailing knowledge, and plan future trips. Periodic social events are also very important. Typically, we hold a late summer Carolina Shrimp Boil at a nearby outdoor venue and a December Holiday Party at a local establishment.
Your annual dues also provide you with a monthly newsletter filled cover to cover with interesting articles about sailing, club event information, and a calendar of sailing opportunities. You will have the chance to learn and participate as much as you desire! At NLSC we find lifelong friends and build lasting memories.
