Learn to Sail TexasWhat sets us apart?
We are located in one of the most challenging sailing areas in the USA. We are serious about safety afloat. Corpus is the 4th busiest Port in the USA by tonnage and, the largest exporter of crude oil in the nation. In addition it's one of the windiest coastal cities in the USA. She averages 12 mph, 24/7, normally well above any other coastal city. With our consistently moderate winds you will gain practical experience in handling them. Then, when your ready, enter the ship channel, understanding the proper protocols to be used in negotiating with commercial traffic.
Our schedule is currently posted through October.

Corpus 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 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 time allows, we may venture into the Gulf of Mexico. Want to know more?
