Learn to Sail Texas

What sets us apart?

We are located in one of the best sailing areas in the USA. Our basic training philosophy is in line with the ASA standards. We are serious about safety afloat. Corpus is the 4th busiest Port in the USA by tonnage. the largest exporter of crude oil, and, is one of the windiest coastal cities in the USA. She averages 12 mph, normally well above any other coastal city. With our consistently moderate winds you will gain practical experience in handling them
The Winter Solstice is approaching, (our shortest period of daylight hours). The daylight hours will begin to lengthen after its passing. Night time temps have dropped to a comfortable level. A great time for anchoring out. With our winter approaching we have reduced our class rates. This reduction will stay in place until the Vernal equinox, (3/20/19)
Our schedule is currently posted through February.
PLEASE NOTE we are expanding ONE of our Fast Track classes each month to 6 days each month. So many times, just when students have finally absorbed the basic concepts, the class ends. We want one more day to ensure that every student is competent and confident sailor. Our goal is to have every class plan and safely execute a trip once they are in training for the ASA 104 level. Some students don't require this additional day but, all will benefit. For those with some boating experience we will continue to offer the 5 day class

Learn to Sail Texas requires that the ASA 101 Basic Keelboat class is taught on a relatively small, (25 foot, but has slept 5), tiller boat with hank on sails. This requirement makes a huge, positive difference in the beginner's learning curve. The Corpus Christi Bay covers 192 square miles and unlike other bays in Texas, is primarily open water with few spoil areas. When taking a class you will have practical experience with commercial traffic and Aids To Navigation, (ATON's, e.g. Nuns, Cans, Day beacons). The advance classes navigate portions of the Intra Coastal Waterway,(ICW), commercial ship channels, and if the class is ready, we may venture into the Gulf of Mexico. Want to know more?

Note* Students have requested that we modify our schedule for the 103 / 104 Combo class. Classes will now begin at 12:00 noon on the first day usually a Thursday and run through the weekend. This will allow for travel time to Corpus and save you a night in a hotel.

Our Chief Instructor Captain Chris, (ASA Outstanding Instructor of the Year 2017), has been sailing keelboats on the Texas coast since the early 90's and teaching the ASA sailing curriculum since 2003. He now has accumulated more than 2500 days in navigable waters.

Captain Chris' US Coast Guard issued Masters License, (100 Ton), with the following warrants;

Captain Chris is a certified sailing instructor for all the above ASA sailing and navigation classes.

The Winter solstice is approaching. The daylight hours continue to diminish until its passing on 12/21/18. The average winds will begin to increase as we approach our Winter. Whether its a two day basic keelboat sail training class or an adventurous; five, six or seven day combination class, we are sure you'll have a positive experience.
