Northwestern Sailing Center

July 9, 2011 under Things to Do

Jeff and I are taking sailing classes at the Northwestern Sailing Center.  This may be the biggest secret in Evanston, because not only do you get five hours of instruction per week, you also get unlimited use of their boats while you take the class.  So if you want to go out on the lake on a weekday, you just show up and check out a boat.  Here’s a link to the sailing center, here’s a video on how to rig the 420, which is one of the boats they use.
