MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--For a lot of us, summer fun means spending time on the waterways.  One professional sailing school wants to make sure we're all staying afloat while hitting the high seas.  I got to spent a little time onboard a 40-foot Beneteau yacht with the folks from "SailTime."  General manager Scott Monroe says sailing is much like driving a car.  Some professional training along with minimal distraction can make for the best and safest experience possible. 

A recent Coast Guard report states nearly 75 percent of all fatal boating accidents happened because of no formal training. This is a point the folks at "SailTime" are trying to bring home during "National Boating and Fishing Week" happening now.  If you're interested in learning how to sail with this organization, just click here.
