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. Corpus is one of the windiest cities in the USA, (#8). She averages 12 mph, well above any other coastal city. Sorry, San Francisco and Galveston. With our strong winds you will gain practical experience in handling them

Well the Dog Days of Summer are just around the corner. We are celebrating them with a sale price for the month of August only. Check our "Enroll Here" page to view the special price Rollback.

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. We just made a tour of the marinas in Port Aransas. The city marina is slowly making a good recovery. Island Moorings on the other hand, shows no signs of recovery, shame... it was one of our favorites. Our schedule is currently posted through August.
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.
