Located in Milwaukee’s Veterans Park, the Sailing Center boasts stunning views of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee skyline, both night and day. The Windhover Community Room, Sullivan Deck and the center’s two classrooms, Challenge and Integrity, can be rented individually or in total for larger functions. Along with our exclusive caterer, Zilli Hospitality Group, our staff would be happy to provide you with a personal tour. Plus we offer a large free public parking area adjacent to our facilities and free Wi-Fi throughout the building.

Windhover Community Room and Sullivan Deck
The Windhover Community Room is a large multi-purpose room, a 1782 sq/ft space that can be used for a variety of functions, from business presentations to formal dinners and receptions. Surrounded by glass on three sides, there is no venue in Milwaukee that offers the same commanding views. The room can be accessed by an external staircase which rises through the Sullivan Deck, an ADA-accessible elevator or internal staircase. It is totally carpeted, with state-of-the-art lighting controls, large multi-media screen and Wi-Fi access. The room can accommodate up to 150 for theater style presentations or receptions and 120 for sit-down dinners. The Sullivan Deck, is an extension of the Windhover Community Room, and at 527 sq/ft, it can provide a beautiful outdoor pre-function gathering space for receptions, a break-out space for meetings or its own unique space for a break or a bar. The Sailing Center can assist you in arranging for tables and chairs as well as audio/visual services for your event.

My experience with the Sailing Center was wonderful. I could not have asked for a more beautiful place to host our reception. The setting is stunning, the building itself is such a cool facility, and all of the staff I worked with were flexible, professional, honest and went above and beyond to be helpful.

It was such a joy to get to have our celebration here, and the views of Milwaukee and the lake, especially with the skyline at night, are unparalleled. I can't say enough kind things about this organization.
