We will be sailing Lake Travis on my Pearson 30, named Old School. She is a beautiful example of a classic sailboat and a joy to sail. After a safety briefing, we will spend 5 minutes motoring into the body of the lake and hoist the sails. While I'm happy to sail the boat, it's more fun if you get involved. You do not need to be a sailor! Everyone will have opportunity to steer the boat and trim sails. I will show you how its done, coach you, and let you do as much of the sailing as you like. Or, you can just kick back and enjoy the ride. I'm happy to be an instructor, tour guide, talk boats, or simply enjoy the company. With some wind, it will be a great sailing experience. If becalmed, we can fire up the engine and hunt the wind. Depending on conditions, I may be able to pull you behind the boat while we sail. As the time get's near, we will drop sails and motor into the marina, where you can enjoy the view or head to a nearby restaurant. Yes, you get to see posh homes, local landmarks and awesome scenery. You may even learn something. But really, it's sailing with friends. This is a great way for individuals and small groups to combine and experience sailing. Meet some new people, make friends! *Saturday 9/14 is special because we will see the sunset at 7:37, night sail, and then watch the moonrise at 8:18. Guests have loved this event. Magic!
I will bring ice, water, sparkling water & Diet Coke.
Boat & safety equipment, sunscreen, cooler, ice, and floating noodles.
I have sailed Lake Travis on my beloved Old School for over 15 years. My experience includes bareboat sailing charters in Croatia, British Virgin Islands and St. Martin. I got my Captains license in 2018, as I was taking a break from the medical device industry. I learned to sail on this boat and have done all the maintenance since I bought her. I appreciate that sailing can be intimidating but it doesn't need to be. Along the way, I will show you how to handle the boat, give insights on owning a classic sailboat, and we will have fun. This is a great opportunity to experience the freedom and joy of sailing, and you might just meet some cool people! I love hosting and spending time on the boat, with old friends as well as new friends. Don't be shy-come sailing. Instagram: @oldschoolsailing

Var ni kommer att vara
Lake Travis is a jewel of Central Texas. It experiences wide fluctuations in water levels and thus has an interesting and variable landscape. You will have a special lake view of Mansfield Dam, an historic landmark, which was built to control flooding in Central Texas. We will pass Starnes Island, a favorite spot for the party boat scene. Old School offers great views of posh homes, awesome sunsets, and people out enjoying the lake.
