Bingham Farms, MI (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
Fair Wind Sailing School (http://www.fairwindsailing.com) announces the opening of its Lake Erie sailing base and Ohio office. With this expansion, Fair Wind Sailing School becomes the first American Sailing Association (ASA) affiliate to operate in Ohio or offer ASA Certification sailing lessons on Lake Erie. "We are thrilled to bring ASA Certification to Lake Erie and Ohio" commented David Bello, President of Fair Wind Sailing School. "The Ohio school augments our school on Lake St Clair in Michigan and is a natural extension given our Great Lakes roots and the outstanding sailing on Lake Erie," continued Bello.
Fair Wind’s Ohio school is co-located with Quantum Sails (http://www.quantumsails.com) in Toledo, Ohio. "A natural partnership," said Fair Wind’s Bello, "We’re both committed to growing the number of Lake Erie sailors." The actual Lake Erie sailing base is located at Toledo Beach Marina (http://www.toledobeachmarina.com) near the Michigan-Ohio line and was chosen for its proximity to the Lake Erie Islands and their sailing infrastructure. The location is also a convenient drive from major metropolitan areas, such as Cleveland, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, PA. From its Lake Erie base, Fair Wind Sailing School will offer its Instant Bareboater sailing lesson. This class teaches ASA 101, 103 and 104 in a week-long, live-aboard setting and is perfect sailing instruction for those preparing to bareboat charter or buy a boat. Fair Wind will also teach its Instant Cruiser course -- a weekend, live-aboard class covering the material in ASA 101 and 103, as well as classes in Coastal Navigation and Advanced Sailing.
