One thought on “Interested in sailing on the Great Lakes

    Whenever I see someone interested in getting started on the Lakes, I generally see the SIU Apprenticeship Program at Piney Point recommended as a starting point. If you decide to go the SIU Apprenticeship route, and you get accepted, make sure your affairs are in order and you are ready to ship for school when you are assigned a class. I was accepted and set to go there myself about 10 years ago, but circumstances beyond my control caused me to delay my start date. After the second delay, they mailed my application packet back to me and marked me disqualified from attending the school. I only add that because I don’t want to see anyone else lose their opportunity to attend.
