Milwaukee Wisconsin Sailing

Red Witch II under sail

Day Sail

MILWAUKEE 

  • Depart – Milwaukee, WI Historic Third Ward
  • Sail aboard Red Witch II, a 1914-design America’s Cup sailing yacht replica.
  • Duration – 90 Minutes
  • Cost – $35 Per Person

About The Sailing Experience

We really do sail – once outside the harbor we hoist the sails, turn off the engine and experience the magnificence of pure sailing on Lake Michigan. If interested, the Captain will be happy to explain the math, physics and other technical aspects underlying how to sail.

We’re All About Your Safety – Boat and Captain

Red Witch II is equipped with all required safety gear. Red Witch II is a very seaworthy vessel.  She was specifically designed to safely race on the Pacific Ocean– even in extreme weather. Note that one of her sisterships circumnavigated the globe twice.

The captain has served as a Merchant Marine officer (100-Ton Ship’s Master) for 20+ years. He has safely carried 336,000 passengers on coastal Lake Michigan and coastal Pacific Ocean. He has piloted commercial sailboats and motor vessels from Chicago’s Navy Pier (where he trained new captains to pilot 360-passenger architectural tour boats); Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward, and Kenosha Harbor; Santa Barbara Harbor and Marina Del Rey (Los Angeles, California). We sail up to one mile or three miles offshore, depending upon the time of year– as specified by the U.S Coast Guard.

Our Dock – 318 S. Water Street in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward (next to the silo). Many restaurants and bars are within a two block walk – enjoy a bite and drink before joining us for a magnificent sail. Do not bring beverages aboard the boat – beverages are available shortly after departure.
