There's Sailing in the Lansing Area?

Yes! Absolutely! Lake Lansing, a 485-acre lake sports two public county parks, one with trailer launching access, and two sailing clubs, the Lansing Sailing Club, and the Michigan State University Sailing Center.

The Lansing Sailing Club

The Lansing Sailing Club is the club for you - regardless if you are an old salt or have never sailed before. It's the club for you if you own your own boat, are trying to decide what boat to buy or just want to go sailing.

If you don't sail yet, we will teach you how. If you have kids, they can learn to sail in our Junior Sailing program offered every summer.

If you like racing, or want to give it a whirl, we have a very active racing program that is both friendly, fun and yet competitive - and you will enjoy the after racing commaraderie. We have fleet racing in Sunfish and Lasers on Wednesday evenings and in Melges 17s and Lightnings on Sunday afternoons.

Founded in 1963, the club currently has about 70 members of all ages, backgrounds and sailing levels. Some members prefer racing, others day sailing. Still others do both. Activities also include holiday picnics, moonlight sails and other events. There is something for everyone.

New membership applications are always welcome. Applicants with a fleet sailboat (Melges 17, Sunfish, Laser or Lightning) are given first priority for membership. Special Wednesday Racing memberships are available for those racing Sunfish or Lasers in the LSC's Wednesday night series during the summer.

The LSC Sunday fleet racing in Lightnings provides an opportunity to learn how to crew - even if not members of the club.

A good way to get started in sailing is to become an Associate Member. This membership includes use of our club boats on a first come - first sail basis, participation in our "Learn to Sail" program and in other club activities. LSC's current club boat fleet includes Sunfish, Lightnigns and Lasers..
