The Sailing Education Association of Sheboygan (SEAS) is offering classes in August for beginners from getting your feet wet to earning a sailing certification. SEAS believes in Boating for Everyone! We encourage anyone with an interest is sailing or boating to try it. Being on the water is an incredible feeling and a great family or friend activity.
