Week in the life

of a Broad Reach Member…

The Mac Race is Coming up in July!

It’s a 4 day sailing race from Chi to Mackinac Island Michigan.  A world-class adventure – I’m pumped!

Next Month's Sailing Trip

Next month you’ve scheduled a 2 day lake crossing to explore some Michigan coastline.

This Saturday

This Saturday eve you’re taking friends out for a sunset fireworks cruise and sleep on the yacht.


Looks like the boat is available tomorrow after work.  With a few clicks on my phone it’s reserved!

How it Works

A boat is shared by a limited number of members

Only these members can use the boat.

Request any timeslots that you want

Our advanced reservation system assigns boat reservation from those selections, fairly balancing your requests with those of other members.

Reserve far in advance or last minute

Each month members request boat time for the following month.  Any unassigned slots are available to request up to 7 days in advance.

If your plans change, you can return your reservation

You can release a reservation and use the credit for another time.

Here’s what our members have to say

I take friends out on the lake all summer long. Midweek sails are my favorite, like a mini-weekend after work.  Love the boats and the service!

Stu Robertson

There aren’t many things as fun or as special as sailing on Lake Michigan, reaching along with the skyline in view, and knowing that I was able to bring friends and family along to enjoy it, too. To be able to soak that in and share it, without the worries that come with owning a boat, that has become a special part of the summer.


What's on your bucket list?
