DOYLE SAILS TRAVERSE CITY

ABOUT THIS LOFT

McCord Henry, cut his maritime teeth toddling around a 46’ sloop cockpit and in his early 20’s came to apprentice with Bill at Bluewater Sail & Canvas in 1997 (founded by Bill Buchbinder).

Soaking up the work and racing experience of a sailmaker, as Doyle Traverse City emerged, McCord began club racing and cruising. Experience which continued from the Great Lakes, down the Mississippi, into the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

The events starting 2020 left no doubts, and the Loft stayed open. This legacy of hands-on excellence and a well-rounded skill set in the past, present and future service the goal to meet and exceed the Sailing standard for the greater Grand Traverse Area.
