Group Sailing Lessons Begin July 24

Fri July 14, 2023

There is still time to enroll in Crystal Lake Park District Private Sailing Lessons and Group Sailing Lessons at Main Beach.

Anyone wishing to rent sail boat from the Crystal Lake Park District Boat House must present a sailing card from a Crystal Lake Park District course, or another reputable organization. Sailors may also present ownership papers of a sailboat to rent a boat on Crystal Lake. Passengers do NOT need to present card, only person sailing.

Group Sailing Lessons

Are you a beginner and want to start sailing or experienced and just need to receive your sailing card.  Upon completion of this class, students must demonstrate the basic skills and knowledge of sailing to receive a Park District Sailing Card, which is required for renting sail boats on Crystal Lake. Water shoes and beach attire are required. Register online at or in person at the Crystal Lake Park District Admin. Office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Avenue, Crystal Lake
