Wat je gaat doen
The weather may be turning cooler- but the wind is returning and it’s not so awfully hot. Truly, I prefer sailing this time of year to the summer. Don’t let the calendar scare you! 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 with the boat leaning side to side and moving quick. If becalmed, we can fire up the engine and hunt the wind. Sailing teaches you to roll with the conditions. As the time gets 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 will probably learn something about sailing. But really, it's sailing with friends.
I have sailed Lake Travis on my beloved Old School for over 15 years. My experience includes sailing 40' yachts in Croatia, British Virgin Islands and St. Martin. Most important, I’ve been hosting this experience since February 2019, love it, and have over 50 five-star reviews. 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. More pictures on Instagram: @oldschoolsailing

Waar je naartoe gaat
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.
