Keeping the Lakes Great: Great Sailing - Great Partners - Great Lakes :: St. Joseph, Michigan

A gathering of angels appeared above my
head. They sang to me this song of hope,
and this is what they said, they said
'Come sail away, come sail away, come
sail away with me. Come sail away, come
sail away, come sail away with me.'"

"Come Sail Away" written by Dennis
DeYoung from the 1977 Styx album
"The Grand Illusion."

Keeping the Lakes Great!
Great Sailing-Great Partners-Great Lakes

We are building a new Sailing - Conservation Partnership to promote and support the economic and environmental sustainability  of the Great Lakes.

Our Mission:

   Promoting Great Lakes conservation through education and outreach, supporting stewardship development, natural resource protection and restoration actions, and providing energy and synergy for conservation efforts in support of local and regional environmental and economic sustainability.


Supporting conservation organizations and other worthwhile charitable groups by donating sailing cruises for: fund raising initiatives; to provide recognition/reward for stewardship leaders; and to provide education, outreach, and team building experiences.

To help provide funding support for Great Lakes conservation outreach and education activities, workshops, and conferences. In partnership, will be building capacity to help fund on the ground species and habitat protection and restoration projects.

Become a Sponsoring Great Partner,  join the Keeping the Lakes Great Friends Group, or go sailing to support our Great Lakes conservation efforts!

Already onboard with us is our first major sponsoring Partnership Member, St. Julian Winery, our Great Wines - Great Lakes Partner.  St. Julian Winery also will be providing us complimentary great wines for wine sampling on all our cruises to benefit the Great Lakes!

Come Sail Away Charters is our Great Sailing - Great Lakes Partner. Every Come Sail Away Charters sailing cruise benefits Great Lakes conservation, as a portion of every cruise payment is donated to help build our Great Lakes Sailing - Conservation Partnership.

Keeping the Lakes Great! has already donated cruises and sponsored conferences, including for the Great Lakes Commission, Great Lakes Beaches Association, St. Joseph Today, Curious Kids Museum, Downs Syndrome Association of Northern Indiana, Haitian Children School Aid Relief Effort, and the Midwestern Endangered Species Coordinators Group.

Much more coming on our new exciting Partnership, and the limitless opportunities it can represent.
