Door County Sail

2018 Sailing Schedule Asayo Horibe
Booked: 5 | Free Seats: 13

Thursday, July 26th to Sunday, July 29th

Asayo Horibe, cruise captain

Join us for 4 days of relaxation with sailing, dining and a very special communion with members of the Northwest Sailing Association. We will gather at the back porch behind the bar at the Alpine Resort. It is right on the shores of Green Bay. We will meet and greet each other enjoying pizza, salad, drinks and great company.

It is planned as a long weekend of getting to know each other better, sharing the love of sailing and learning to hone our skills as we venture on onto the waters of Green Bay. Events are not carved in stone. We may even take the ferry to Washington Island. There are many things to do in this Door County peninsula in Wisconsin. We like to dine at the Log Den, which is about 3 miles from Egg Harbor or have breakfast at other places in Egg Harbor or Fish Creek.

Our meeting place, Egg Harbor, is about a six-­‐hour drive north into Wisconsin and about a 3-­‐4 day sail from the lower Lake Michigan harbors. Skippers may be looking for crew to sail up and trailer sailors will be looking for carpooling companions on the drive north. As cruise captain, I will try to accommodate sailors who would like to carpool.

Please make reservations at the Alpine Lodge (1-­‐888-­‐281 8128), mention the NWSA and call the harbor master at the Egg Harbor Marina or Fish Creek to get a slip.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or ideas to make it a more fun weekend. It’s the last weekend in July. I will sacrifice a few chickens so we will have fair winds and a balmy relaxing time. I will have an itinerary at the front desk at the Alpine. Just identify yourself as part of the NWSA. Please feel free to contact me: Cell (224-­‐623-­‐1304) or Home (847-­‐869-­‐5809 if you have any questions.

Kenosha II Sail

2018 Sailing Schedule Bill Draver
Booked: 21 | Free Seats: 9

July 28, 2018

Bill Draver, cruise captain

If you decided not to attend a sail because you were worried about space on the boats – put your fears to rest and join us on either or both of our Kenosha sails. Kenosha Harbor is only 53 miles (less than 1 hour drive) from O’Hare International Airport.

Currently, we have 7 boats in Kenosha Harbor and I calculate that we have space for approx. 30 crew. Peggy and I are currently in the process of checking out several restaurants for our after sail dinner.
