SHOW OFF YOUR SKILLS TO FAMILY & FRIENDS

Chicago Sailing is Chicago’s only public sailboat rental facility, providing a wide range of boats for you and your friends to enjoy. Rentals are available from morning til dusk, seven days a week, so you can enjoy sailing as often as you like. Take your friends sailing and show them the skyline!

 

We use J/22 and J/30 keelboats for their quality, design, and ease of handling. J/22's offer large, open cockpits and room for up to five adults. The J/30 offers additional space and comfort, and is the classic example of a weekend cruising vessel.  Our T-10 is one of Lake Michigan's most popular racing vessels. It's open, flat deck provides plenty of space for all of your passengers.

 

 The Hunter-326's are cruising oriented with all imaginable conveniences for the discerning sailor. Imp & Bangarang, our two Beneteau yachts offer cruising comfort with speed and agility.  Our Catalina-400 is a cruising sailor’s dream boat with a huge cockpit, double wheels, and furling sails. All of these vessels are available to skippers with appropriate sailing experience.

Your First Rental:

New renters are required to submit a sailing resume prior to their first rental. You can fill out our form online here, or email your current sailing resume to contactus@chicagosailing.com

 

On your first rental, you will need to complete a checkout with our professional staff, in which you review the boat and our policies and safety procedures. Checkouts on our J/22s take place in the 15-20 minutes prior to your rental reservation. Checkouts on boats 30’ or larger take an hour, and must be completed on a weekday. Once you have passed a checkout, you will be free to head out and enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan.
