LMSS Summer 2020: Current Update

As announced last week, Lake Minnetonka Sailing School will open June 15 for the summer season, though some offerings will be affected by current state guidelines.

Following is our plan for classes taking place June 15 – June 26. Class offerings beginning after June 26 will be announced two weeks prior to start date.

To recap, LMSS will operate single-handed, and family-only sailing classes to ensure social distancing measures can be met by all sailors. Beginning June 15, we are able to operate:

  • Opti Race Team and Opti Learn to Race
  • Recreational Camp, age 7-9 and 10-12
  • Laser Race Team
  • X Boat Race Team (family only)
  • Sail with LMSS Membership (family only)
  • Keelboat Sailing (solo or family only)

In some cases, capacity limits may dictate adjustments to class sizes and sessions, in which case we will contact you for any class taking place between June 15 – 26. Thank you for your patience. 

Class Cancelations June 15 – 26

Due to state regulation, and/or concern for adherence to social distancing measures, we are unable to provide the following at the onset of the season (June 15 – June 26). Should this status change, we will announce plans two weeks prior to the start of new classes.

  • 420 Race Team and 420 Learn to Race
  • Recreational Camp, age 13-16
  • Little Skippers
  • X Boat Race (modified to a family-only class)

Affected participants of the above classes were emailed Friday, May 29 which included a survey feedback link to choose an option, either an alternate course selection, or refund options. If you did not see this email, please check your junk folder, and/or contact us.
