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 take pride in exceeding the ASA basic requirements. We are serious about safety afloat; winching techniques, handling ship traffic to prepping for heavy weather.

We'd like to share with y'all that our Chief Instructor Captain Chris was just awarded the American Sailing Association's Outstanding Instructor of the Year award. We thank all our students, without them it would not have happened!

Well Harvey has left our area after wreaking havoc on surrounding communities. Harvey passed to the North of Corpus putting us on the weaker side of the Category 4 storm. The good news is that all vessels we were charged with or assisted with had minimal cometic damage if any. Our less fortunate neighbors in; Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Ingleside, Rockport were devastated. We've posted some pic's from Corpus and Bahia Marinas. Our schedule is currently posted through July.
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 could sleep 5), tiller boat with hank on sails. This requirement makes a huge, positive difference in the beginners 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). We take our training very seriously as many classes in the Spring and early Summer experience 30+ knots winds. You'll learn how to handle them. 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 drive time to Corpus and save you a night in a hotel.
We have also reduced the cost of all the classes during the spring and early summer season.
