LMSS Summer 2020 and COVID-19 Update

Planning is well underway for Summer 2020 at Lake Minnetonka Sailing School. We anticipate – and remain hopeful – for another fantastic season. 
As you know, COVID-19 is impacting youth programming around the country, and the world. LMSS is committed to our current schedule of sessions and camps, and looks forward to welcoming new and returning students to Lighthouse Island on June 15.

The safety of our students, staff and volunteers will always be our top priority, and we are taking this very seriously as we continue the planning process and prepare our facility.

For now, we encourage you to proceed with summer registration as planned. We will continue to monitor the recommendations and impact of local and national health authorities throughout the spring, and remain optimistic about the upcoming season.


  • Registration is ongoing for all recreational camps, Learn to Race programs, and Race Teams
  • The newly-launched Keelboat Program for adult and family sailing lessons is live with evening availability throughout the entire summer
  • Though spring high school sailing district qualifiers and national events have been canceled by the Interscholastic Sailing Association (ISSA),* our season continues via virtual dry land practice, online learning and virtual regattas. Nearly 30 students participated in our first virtual event! 

Thank you for your support, stay safe, and let’s look forward to another great summer of sailing!
