About The Boat

Second Wind is a 36′ sloop made right here in Michigan and is fully inspected by the US Coast Guard and Michigan DNR for your safety and comfort. The boat offers both sun and shaded areas along with a very popular custom crafted padded bench seat on the foredeck to enjoy the view in comfort and privacy. A marine head, dinette and full galley are also provided. You’ll be amazed at the stress free sailing aboard as the boat has all the modern conveniences such a auto pilot, electric winch, and up to date electronics!

About the Adventure

Come sail with us on beautiful West Grand Traverse Bay.  Wind Sailing offers a variety of charter lengths where you can take the wheel or just relax and enjoy the scenery.  Our captains enjoy answering questions and teaching about the wonderful world of sailing!  Anchoring and swimming is another option as the water is clear and refreshing.

Wonderful sail! Fantastic outing with Captain Loren. Beautiful views of the area from a different perspective. He is knowledgeable and welcoming. The boat very comfortable and sails nicely. I highly recommend a trip with him. Suitable for families. Don't miss the opportunity to be out on Grand Traverse Bay.

We had a wonderful time sailing with Captain Loren! It was a smooth ride, and he answered all of our questions about the boat, sailing, and Traverse City. Would absolutely recommend to any visitors as part of the Traverse City experience!

My wife and I did the sunset 2-hour tour with Captain Loren. He was communicative leading up to our tour date and made sure we had an amazing experience. Loren was knowledgeable and very accommodating. Totally would do this tour again!

My husband surprised me with an early birthday gift of an afternoon sail on Grand Traverse bay. Loren was fabulous. Skilled sailor and warm host. The boat is beautiful. Sailing is an amazing experience. We enjoyed every single minute.

My husband and I had a fabulous time celebrating our honeymoon on this sailing charter! Captain Loren was AMAZING! His wife even got us a bottle of wine to congratulate us. If I could give them a rating of 100 stars I would! We will be back!

We had such a beautiful sail with Captain Loren. He made a 2 hour sail with twin 3 year olds easy, they were so thrilled to help him steer. We loved having the boat to ourselves. From booking the trip to the actual sail, everything was easy and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you! I’d highly recommend and will do this again our next visit.
