The Windjammers Cruising Committee arranges about six cruises that range from one to several days in length. These cruises will be organized, planned and led by a cruise coordinator. You can join or leave a cruise at any time, meet us at ports along the cruise or hop on a cruising boat. Contact a Cruise Coordinator for cruise details.
We encourage members to organize and plan their own cruises. If you wish to have other boats join you, the Cruise Committee will help by informing members of your cruise details and itinerary.
- Create marina and anchorage reports
- Arrange cruising educational seminars
- Promote floatillas

ANCHOR OUT & RAFT UP

Join or leave at any time for a sail around the lower bay in the afternoon, rafting-up with fellow cruisers for snacks, beverages and a potluck dinner on the water. We’ll break apart for a night at anchor tucked into Little Tail. Then, raft-up in the morning for coffee and pancakes smothered in butter and syrup with a side order of sausages. Last year two kayakers joined us for breakfast!

We’ll Return to Menominee on the 13th.
MURAL ADAMS CRUISE
Saturday Aug 27 – Friday Sep 2
This is the cruise that started the committee! Originally named the anywhere the wind blows, it has been renamed for the man who inspired this Committee. The cruise will favor ports with restaurants and shops to accommodate those who wish to go inland. Since this is a multi-port cruise, it will be possible to join or leave the flotilla at any time.
