Relax and enjoy one of the most exciting sailing experiences in Chicago, a Sailing Adventure in the Windy City on the 148’ four-mast Tall Ship WINDY. Built of modern materials, but like the old trading schooners and sail training ships, the WINDY has all the character and charm of the great days of sailing.
You may choose to help by raising and trimming the sails, or even taking a turn at the wheel. There are no set courses; as authentic sailing ships, the WINDY sails with the wind so every cruise is unique. She is silently pushed by the winds once her sails are set and engine turned off.
From the water, Chicago’s magnificent skyline is second to none and the Captain and Crew are always willing to point out the skyline landmarks and Great Lakes wildlife. So set sail and enjoy a Chicago adventure as you experience the waters of Lake Michigan!
