A word about this COVID Flu thing.
It is a highly contagious flu, if you are not healthy... and over 50... You'll need to be careful. However, a little
sunshine and fresh air can't be bad! The UV light from the sun kills it.
Beaches, Bars and Restaurants are open at a limited capacity. Life is getting back to near normal. Our school has reduced class sizes.
Until the guidelines change all basic sailing classes will be limited to three, (3), students. Advanced classes will be limited to three also.
You must bring a mask as required by multiple government citadels, you need only wear it when you enter the classroom. Some students are electing to stay in hotels during their advanced classes, (It's a personal choice).
Our schedule is posted through May.
What 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 one of the windiest coastal cities in the USA. In addition the 4th busiest Port in the USA by tonnage, (until the recent Executive Orders take effect). With our consistently moderate winds you'll gain practical experience in handling them. Then, during the 104 class, your ready to; plan a trip, Navigate, check weather, make all preparations to get underway, negotiate with commercial ship traffic, make port in another city. Then plan the return trip to Corpus Christi the following day.
Our schedule has been posted through May for enrollment.
Learn to Sail Texas prefers that the ASA 101 Basic Keelboat class is taught on
a relatively small, (25 foot, but can sleep 5), tiller boat with hank on sails. Learning on smaller
vessels make a difference in the learning curve.
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 Aids To Navigation, (ATON's, e.g. Nuns, Cans, Day Beacons). The advance classes navigate portions of the Intra Coastal Waterway,(ICW), commercial ship channel, and if time allows, we may venture into the Gulf of Mexico.

Our monthly climate data. Average temperatures,(F) and winds,(mph) are:
|Month||Average High||Average Low||Average Winds|
The March equinox is approaching, (equal hours of daylight and night). The amount of daylight hours
continue to increase. Our average daytime temperatures are increasing. The moderate evening temps
make it a great time to anchor out. 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.
