Once again, Sailing Lake Calhoun is offering free sailboat rides this summer!
Participating is 100% free and they have nothing to sell or promote, other than meeting new people, sharing experiences and having a good time. I took advantage of this offer a few times in the past and had a blast learning to sail and enjoying the lake. It’s a great activity for out of town guests.
You really have to love the Twin Cities and the awesome people here!
To participate, first print/fill out out a waiver.
Weather and health permitting, rides are offered 7 days a week from afternoon until sunset, May through mid October. Just come to the public sailing dock, at Lake Calhoun … which is at the north-east corner of the Lake: 3000 Calhoun Parkway East, Minneapolis, MN. You might have to wait 15 minutes or so if they are out on the lake but they’ll be by soon enough to pick you up!
