Learn to Sail Texas

What sets us apart?

We are located in some of the best sailing grounds 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, from winching techniques to prepping for heavy weather.


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. buoys). We take our training very seriously, 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 Intracoastal Waterway, commercial ship channels, and usually 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 the 103/104 class and the Fast Track.
