Halcyon Sailing – Lake St. Clair offers introductory sailing and advanced cruising lessons.  We are conveniently located at Jefferson Beach Marina – the premier marina in the area. This location offers a protected area with easy access to vast, freshwater sailing venues of Detroit and Canada.

The best way to learn to sail is by getting on a boat and sailing.  With the exception of the navigation course, almost all instruction is hands-on.  While passing the written test is very important, what you really want to gain is confidence & competence in handling the sailboat under power, docking, and in heavy weather.  Getting the students to that point is always our goal for the course – as well as having a great time.

We always run small classes, usually with only 2 students on-board unless a family or group of friends wish to take a course together.  Classes are scheduled on-demand which makes it easy to accommodate your time-frame.  Courses can be combined or taken separately based on a student’s needs.

All of our instructors are ASA instructor certified, highly experienced, and have USCG Master Captain credentials. Our vessels are in exceptional condition and undergo a USCG safety inspection every season.
