Sail Chicago is run entirely by volunteer members. 

And despite having more than 200 members, 13 boats, a fully developed sailing instruction program for all levels of sailing, a racing program, community sailing outreach programs, maintenance crews, social sailing events, member meetings and being an accredited US Sailing school, there's not a single paid staff member. 

The organization thrives on the passion, commitment and generosity of its members. Every penny we earn goes right back into making sailing in Chicago more affordable and accessible to everyone.

Consider donating to help us continue to expand our organization, and help bring sailing within reach for more Chicagoans.
