About your host

I left a corporate job to follow my dream of sharing sailing with people. I've sailed all over the US and Caribbean. This year I competed in the St. Petersburg to Havana, Cuba yacht race (we won our class!). I'm a certified sailing instructor with both US Sailing and American Sailing Association. Weekends you'll find me either racing with friends or sharing my sailboat with guests from Austin…

What we’ll do

We'll start with a safety briefing and then head out into Lake Travis to start our lessons. Next we'll go over the basic parts of the boat (sheets, halyards, vangs and more!). Then we'll talk about "reading the wind" and how we harness it to drive the boat. Each guest will take up a position in their first assigned job. We'll practice things like using a winch, adjusting sails and steering…

What else you should know

Wear low, flat shoes. You can bring your own small snacks and drinks. I'll have ice and water on the boat. The boat has a restroom.
