Wat je gaat doen

This experience is limited to 4 guests. It’s a great date, double date or family outing. For 5, send a private request.

We will be sailing Lake Travis on my beloved 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 sails. While I'm happy to sail the boat, it's more fun if you get involved. Everyone will have opportunity to steer the boat and work 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.

January to March, temps are often in the 60s+, but it can be chilly. I give the option to cancel if it’s below 45F or if it looks nasty. Don’t fret the weather, embrace a real experience!.

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 100 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 joy of sailing! I love hosting and spending time on the boat, with old friends as well as new friends. Don't be shy-come sailing.

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, nice boats, awesome scenery, and people enjoying the lake.

This experience is A MUST !!! This host is A STAR! CAPTAIN David is not only sooo friendly but he takes such pride in his boat and taught my son and I how to sail with hands-on fun! He’s a wonderful balance of passionate , chill and pal. The day was perfect. Sun out. Wind filling our sails with some rocking speed and also relaxing glide . The lake is gorgeous! I have been immersing in Airbnb experiences all over the world. This is one of the top 5! NUKBER #1 in Austin !!

Sailing with David was a wonderful experience for my boys and I. David’s love of sailing is apparent. He is obviously experienced and knows the lake like the back of his hand. He took every opportunity to give my boys the hands-on experience that made the trip so much more worthwhile and interesting. Overall, this is a very engaging and unique experience. You come off the lake feeling very relaxed and ready to eat! We would definitely sail with David again when back in Lake Travis.

David is AWESOME!! We were in Austin visiting for the week and wanted a unique way to experience Lake Travis. David is a true blue sailor and taught us so many things about sailing and the local area. We really enjoyed getting to know him and getting a taste of lake life in ATX.
