Sunfish Fleet

Easy to sail and a great beginner's boat that also can challenge the most seasoned sailor, the 14-foot Sunfish attracts sailors at all levels of skill. The sunfish sails under a single, low-profile lateen sail, that is simple to rig and control. The boat is usually raced solo, but readily accommodates two. The Sunfish fleet races on Wednesdays.

Laser Fleet

The Laser is a 14-foot, single-handler with a mainsail. As of 1993, it also is an Olympic class boat.

This fleet races on Wednesday evenings from Memorial Day until early September. Doug Carlson is currently the captain.

BloKarting

BloKarts have revolutionized landsailing by providing an inexpensive way to get involved in an amazing thrill-packed sport. Because of its small size and extreme maneuverability the blokart can be used almost anywhere - from beaches to car parks, sports and recreation areas, tennis courts and now even on ice!. The blokart is portable enough to fit in the trunk of most cars and can be assembled from its unique carry bag in a few minutes with no tools required.Local sailor Doug Carlson introduced the BloKart to Lansing and it wasn't long before Mike Moody got one and joined Doug sailing on empty local parking lots - particularly in the fall, winter and spring when the sailing season on Lake Lansing is over.
