Það sem verður gert

"Social distance", in style. This experience is limited to 4 guests. It’s a great date, double date or family outing.

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. If it’s hot- you can jump in the lake to cool off. Sailing teaches you to roll with the conditions and we will have a great time either way.

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 70 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.

Staðsetning

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.

Sailing was amazing. David was very informative and even let us do some of the sailing ourselves. We were a group of 4 ladies and had a great time! So relaxing and just perfect for the morning. He even gave us a a polaroid photo to take home and remember the time together.

My husband and I had a great time sailing with David! We met another couple on the boat that were very nice and we loved hearing about their life story and the adventures they have been on! It was a great experience, learned a few things about sailing- David happily answered all of my questions! Can’t wait to do it again!

Our sailing adventure was sophisticated and relaxing. My family learned a few things about sailing. Captain David was easygoing, hospitable and kind. Definitely book a sailing experience with David to breeze around the lake.

This was a birthday gift for my husband, who loves learning to sail, and it was brilliant. David was an excellent host and instructor, letting my husband practice his sailing skills and me relax! We had a beautiful morning on Lake Travis, topped off with photos of our excursion. Highly recommended!

Was awesome. Really nice and really tried to teach us how to master sailing. It’s just very hard but we had a blast. Amazing instructor and fun person to be around.

Mikilvæg atriði

Afbókunarregla

Hægt er að afbóka hvaða upplifun sem er innan 24 tíma frá bókun til að fá fulla endurgreiðslu eða allt að 7 dögum áður en upplifunin hefst.

Opinber skilríki

Þú þarft að taka mynd af þér sem passar við myndina á skilríkjunum þínum. Þetta er til þess gert að Airbnb geti staðfest hver tekur í raun þátt í upplifuninni. Þú þarft aðeins að gera þetta einu sinni.

Kröfur til gesta

Allt að 4 gestir frá og með 10 ára aldri geta tekið þátt.

Hvað þarf að taka með

Beer and white wine are welcome. Please, no red as it can stain the boat when it spills. You can bring snacks or a picnic lunch- but if its windy, you probably won't eat them because you are having too much fun sailing.

Non-marking shoes, sandals or bare feet.
