Summer 2020 update: As a way to give people easy access to the lake on the north side of the harbor, the Kenosha Community Sailing Center is now renting kayaks, fishing kayaks, and stand up paddle boards on select days of the week. We are right next door to the Kenosha Yacht Club on the north side of the harbor. All reservations must be made online. Our starting fleet is small this year because of national shortages on recreational equipment (so book ahead). Our hourly rentals are affordable and a great, safe way to be outside with your friends and family.

Anglers looking to try small boat fishing need only book with the Kenosha Community Sailing Center online and bring their tackle down to the Kenosha Yacht Club where the center is located. Recognizing that there are many people who enjoy fishing the harbor, the sailing center wanted to include some fishing kayaks in their new fleet of recreational rental watercraft. The popularity of kayak fishing has been exploding over the last few years. Kayak manufacturers have designed boats specifically for anglers. The fishing kayaks being rented by the Kenosha Community Sailing Center include a handheld fish finder, two flush mount rod holders and plenty of room for gear.

The Kenosha Community Sailing Center is a non-profit collaborative effort with the Kenosha Yacht Club designed to promote education and access to the sport of sailing and the beautiful Lake Michigan shore, as well as the Kenosha Harbor. Adult and youth classes are offered throughout the summer.
