Frequently Asked Questions


Do we need to book in advance?

We welcome last minute reservations but to reserve your preferred date and time please book online or please call us at 231-421-7000 with any questions.

What is your cancellation policy?

If something changes on your end we offer a full refund up to 72 hours before your scheduled sail. We are happy to reschedule your sail based on your needs and our availability.  If the weather is not favorable or safe for sailing we will need to cancel and will do our best to accommodate you at another time or of course offer a full refund.

What should I wear?

A cold sailor is not a happy sailor.  We want you to be comfortable.  Dress in light layers as the weather can be cooler on the water compared to on the land.  Light blankets are available on board. Soft soled non slip shoes are best.  Bring swim gear in the summer months!

Should I tip the Captain?

Tipping is customary.  While 20% gratuity is average, tips should be based entirely on your satisfaction.

Where is the boat docked?

Wind is docked at Center Pointe Marina (12935 S West Bay Shore Drive, Traverse City Michigan 49684). Park on the south side of the brown building with seagulls on the side.  Your Captain will meet you at the white tent that says Great lakes Sailing.  Call us at 231-421-7000 with any questions.
