PRE-SAIL ORIENTATION (PSO)
First-time students who've enrolled in any of our classes as well as new members are required to attend a PSO session before beginning their on-the-water class.
Note: On-the-water sailing classes sell out fast. If you want to learn how to sail this summer, register for an on-the-water class as soon as possible and then schedule your PSO prior to your on-the-water class.
PSO gives new students and new members an introduction to sailing on Lake Michigan and the workings of Sail Chicago. As a sailing cooperative with over 300 members, it is important for everyone to do their part in adhering to the guidelines and maintaining standards of Sail Chicago.
