Our story

Racing on my J24 "Kismet" 2020


          Captain Genevieve  is originally from Montana. She has been a USCG Captain and ASA instructor, and professional sailor for the last ten years. CaptainG has raced, taught, and sailed in Montana, Virgin Islands, and Belize on small and large cruising monohulls and catamarans. 


          CaptainG started Go Sail Flathead Lake in 2016 as a sailing school to share her passion for sailing and teaching. Go Sail Flathead Lake is the one and only American Sailing Association (ASA) Affiliate school in Montana.


          " You are not only learning to sail, you are joining a community of sailors"

The crew has grown over the last few years and now offers lessons, rentals, and charters. We now have 7 sailing ASA Instructors /Captains, access to 10 different boats, sailing in three locations on the lake, and new Flathead Lake Biological Station nautical Map Link to buy to share with you.


          Our mission is to make sailing accessible to all on Montana's largest Lake. CaptainG is a certified Sailing Instructor Evaluator for the ASA. We train all of our ASA instructors/ Captains the art of teaching through intense work shops. Our team has 40 plus years experience sailing on Flathead Lake and around world. We are not just experienced sailors, we are excellent teachers. We are safe, professional, knowledgeable, and fun people to learn from.
