Northern Breezes Sailing School Has Achieved the Gold Standard For Safety. We incorporate all of our standards to "Gold Standards."

In its on-going work for safer boating worldwide, the ASA has instituted the Gold Standard. Northern Breezes has achieved the Gold Standard for safety. All our boats meet safety standards and are inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (all boats on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan). Either the U.S. Power Squadron or the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary inspects boats on our inland lake locations of Lake Minnetonka, White Bear Lake, Medicine Lake, Leech Lake and Pewaukee Lake. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary performs these checks as a public service on recreational boats throughout the U.S.
