The Lake of the Woods International Sailing Association invites you to sail on one of the most astounding sailing adventure vacations available. The lake itself straddles the international border and extends about 100 kilometers (60 miles) in each direction leading to numerous areas of the lake that hold excellent sailing opportunities. There are sailing classes for all types of boats and levels of ability.
There are divisions for competitive racers on state of the art boats. There is also provision for those who sail on less competitive designs who desire only an initiation to racing. LOWISA even allows sailors to opt for a division with pursuit style starts in order to avoid the stress of Olympic style starts. For those who don''t wish to race at all, there is a cruising fleet to allow for sailors who want only the beauty of the lake and camaraderie of other sailors. This provides an avenue for family cruisers to participate in a non threatening atmosphere.
