About us

City from Mouse

At Broad Reach Sailing, it’s our mission to empower independent sailors in a fun, stress-free environment. We strive to make it possible for a broad range of people to enjoy sailing. To do this, we offer several different programs which appeal to people at all levels of sailing experience, from brand new sailor to brand new boat owner.  

The Club, our newest program, was founded in 2010. Members can sail as often as they want with other Club members, and training workshops are included with membership, so it’s great for those just starting out.  Once you are ready to take a boat out on your own, you might step up to our Fractional program. This program, started in 2006, allows you to skipper the boat as if it’s your own, while we take care of all the maintenance and expenses. Or for the ultimate in independence, you may want to purchase a boat. Since 2003, we have been the authorized dealer for the Great Lakes region for Dufour Yachts.

As a small, locally owned business, we have the freedom to innovate. Our programs are member-focused, and based on what we’ve learned over 60 years of combined experience in the sailing industry. It is our sincere hope that Broad Reach will be able to serve you throughout the entirety of your sailing journey.
