What you'll do

We'll meet at the Lake Harriet sailboat dock, say 'hello' and briefly talk about my boat and what to expect based on what the weather is serving up that day. We'll board my my pretty blue Victoria '18 and head out to our wonderful adventure on the lake. Guests are welcome to either sit back and enjoy the sailing, if interested you can learn the basics of sailing and even try your hand at 'taking the helm.' Whatever you're after your experienced skipper will see you have a good time on the lake.

The wind will determine whether this is a gentle sail or a thrilling adventure. With the exception of storms, we will take what the lake offers. If you're new to sailing, rest assured that by design, Freelancer will never capsize.
Other things to note

Meet your host, Arlyn

Host on Airbnb since 2013
  • Identity verified
I consider my love of sailing to be the greatest gift my parents gave me. I grew up sailing on the lakes of Minnesota. Having that deep knowing my bones, I later learned how to teach what I knew. I became a Red Cross Certified Sailing Instructor in California. I taught Deaf sailors so I could marry my fluency in American Sign Language and sailing. Today, I am a life and leadership coach (I also offer my coaching clients 'Coaching Aboard' sessions) and a proud AIRBNB 'Super Host' of my charming cottage on Lake Minnetonka.

Where you'll be

Don't just admire the sailboats on Lake Harriet, experience the lake from aboard a Victoria '18 sloop. Ride the wind, feel the waves and enjoy the unique perspective you get only from the middle of the lake. For a special treat, on hot summer days, some guests can request that we drop anchor and dive in for a deep water refreshing swim along the south shore of the lake. Experience the most beautiful city lake like few people can.
