Sailing a Highlander is
a wonderful outdoor adventure for young and old. It is exciting,
challenging, fun and comparatively inexpensive. It is a sport that brings
together people of all ages and all walks of life with a common interest
and provides an opportunity to build lifelong friendships. If you ever thought you might be interested in sailing and becoming
a member of a sailing club, Highlander Fleet 14
would like to invite you, your family and friends to come sail with us. Competitive used boats can be had for as little as $3,000 to $5,000. Being mechanically oriented is a plus to update rigging and sail controls. Fleet14 is a great support group willing to share ideas - no secrets.
Racing a Highlander can be rather intimidating at first, especially on Lake Erie. However, racing is highly recommended. In the racing environment, your boat handling skills leaving the dock, out in open water and returning to the dock will improve exponentially compared to cruising around by yourself. Fleet 14 is a marvelous support group that hangs around after each race discussing what occurred out on the water in an atmosphere of camaraderie. Also, a racing environment offers safety in numbers. You don't have that sailing alone. There is always help nearby either from fellow sailors or from the race commitee support boat. We should be up to 23 boats in 2012!
Fleet 14 offers one of the largest collection of various Highlander rigging arrangements - there for you to copy and modify to your own needs and budget. As long as your expectations are realistic, your level of enjoyment should max out.
