Lake Manawa Sailing School

Looking for a unique summer activity idea? Take a sailing class at Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs!


Did you know that Lake Manawa Sailing School offers sailing classes every summer right outside of Omaha? They do! I have had a blast this summer learning a new skill and getting even more confident on the water.

Whether your goal is to enjoy recreational sailing with family and friends, or to race competitively, LMSS is run by a volunteer staff of sailing experts and provides a fun and safe way to learn the ropes.


This summer, LMSS offered 5 sessions of introductory sailing courses. These are Monday-Thursday evenings (with one session on Saturday mornings) and cost $225 per adult to enroll. LMSS also offers a Building Skills and Beginning Racing course.


These beginner classes have unfortunately ended this summer, but we wanted to make sure you knew to keep LMSS on your radar for next summer! Bookmark this post to come back to, and get ready to set sail next year!
