With our homeport in Traverse City, Michigan, we need a little help spreading the Unsalted Sailing love…so we’ve enlisted a handful of Unsalted Sailors throughout the Great Lakes.
It’s their job to share with all of us a little ‘Unsalted Reality’ of the Great Lakes sailing lifestyle in their neck of the woods – favorite anchorages, waterfront bars, boat drinks, recipes, horror stories, where to grab a bite, watch the sun set, that one time you know who did you know what…again.

I started sailing on Lake Erie back in college. Since then I have lived the Salted and Unsalted life. Sailing and racing during stints in Charleston, SC and Clearwater, FL enabled me to add some sodium to my life. After relocating to the North Shore of Chicago, I am back to the UNSalted side of things, sailing and racing our a Merit 25, “Daisy Mae”. Having sailed anything, from a sunfish to a 60ft wooden schooner, my only rule is there must be room for a cooler of adult beverages!
This summer we are planning a charter trip with Bay Breeze in Traverse City, weekly beer can races, a cross lake journey, and the Leukemia Cup race in Chicago.

So raise a can…glass…err whatever to another Great Lakes sailing season!
