I have been time sharing many types and sizes of sailboats for the past 30 years and have discovered Chicago Yacht Share is the only way to go! For the two years that I have been with Captain Norm and CYS he has provided most of the advantages of yacht ownership with none of the expensive problems. With other time sharing companies I have found that the boats were not always clean, and there have been mechanical problems which limited our sailing experience. With CYS the boat has always been in pristine condition and I have been proud to show it off to my guests. Captain Norm is a joy to work with and he and CYS have earned my 5 star rating. I look forward to many years of sailing with with Chicago Yacht Share and Captain Norm.
As a child, I always had dreams of sailing a yacht. Today, with some instruction from Captain Norm, it’s a reality. The boat time share concept is perfect for my busy lifestyle. I don’t have to worry about the headaches of maintenance, fuel, insurance etc. I have immensely enjoyed this season and look forward to many more years of recreational sailing.
Captain Norm taught me to sail three years ago, never having sailed prior to my lessons with him. His passion for sailing was contagious and this year I became a certified US Coast Guard Captain, and sailed my first Mac Race.
I have great respect for Captain Norm for his patience, and guidance during my learning process. I love pretending that the great performance cruiser that I sail on is mine. And it is mine during the dates and times I’ve selected.
An important benefit to yacht sharing is a new boat to sail, with out the work and time to keep it in a pristine order. The yachts are kept in very good condition , with fellow members keeping that goal. There are no surprises just great sailing.
The staff is easy to contact and attentive to any requests. I highly recommend Chicago Yacht share for anyone that likes to experience a personal touch to a sailing time share.
Being a member at CYS forpast 3 year has made our sailing days hassle free.Captain Norm cares about us.The Jeanneau boats are fast and fun to sail.Having owned a few sailboats in the past 30 years we say Yacht Share is the way to go.Thank you Captain Norm.
