Ready, Set, Race!

It may be February, but racing season never feels far away at LMSS. As a top provider of race instruction in the Midwest, our LMSS Race Teams continue to be among the most competitive in the region, and 2019 was no exception:

  • Over 75 students participated in race teams in the Opti, 420 and X Boat
  • Students raced in local and regional regattas including the TCYS (Twin Cities Youth Sailing) series, US Sailing Junior Olympics, and ILYA (Inland Lake Yachting Association) Championships on Lake Minnetonka and White Bear Lake
  • Students also traveled to events in Lake Geneva, Milwaukee and Lac La Belle, WI, and most recently, St. Petersburg, Florida!

As we gear up for another exciting racing season, we are thrilled to continue supporting our students as they reach for big dreams.

Learn to Race + Race Teams Q&A Sessions

LMSS has a long history of providing top end racing instruction and performance for our sailors who are looking to achieve their goals and compete on local, regional and national levels. 

What’s next for your sailor? Our program is organized into three progressive tracks, each one building upon the track before it: Recreational Sailing, Learn to Race, and LMSS Race Teams. Sailors are encouraged to advance through these tracks as their skills improve.
