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.

My husband and I decided to take a sunset cruise for our anniversary weekend and we couldn't have made a better decision. Neither of us had been on a sailboat before and Captain Loren made us comfortable. It was such a relaxing experience with perfect weather and breathtaking views!

Very easy to book, such a lovely evening on the bay with Captain Loren at the helm. Very safe, beautiful experience. Perfect for 1 or 2 couples; easy conversation with Captain Loren about his boat, sailing, the bay and more!

This is our 3rd year booking a trip with Wind Sailing and we have the best time every year! We have sailed with Captain Ian and Captain Loren and you can’t go wrong with either. Both captains are helpful, knowledgeable and fun. It’s basically guaranteed to be the most relaxing day of your year. Highly recommend!

We had the most amazing Sunset sailing experience with Captain Loren. Communication prior to our cruise was outstanding, and the instructions on parking and finding the proper place in the marina were very clear and easy to understand. I thought the price was extremely reasonable for a private sunset cruise! Captain Loren was engaging, friendly, and extremely informative. We felt extremely safe and well cared for. We could not have possibly dreamed of a better evening. I cannot rate this excursion highly enough. It was nothing short of perfect!

We sailed with Captain Loren two days in a row — what a fabulous experience. Loved every minute of it. Loren is a great host and a pro at the wheel. Don’t miss a chance to get out on the water with Wind Sailing ……

It was a last minute decision, while we were in Traverse City, to book a sailboat cruise. So glad we chose Wind Sailing. It was a beautiful morning to experience my wife's first time on a sailboat. Captain Loren made it a memory we'll never forget. He was very knowledgeable and let us experience the fun part 'hands on' of sailing. We would highly recommend Wind Sailing and will definitely do it again on our next visit to Traverse City.

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.
