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

We had a great time on the water with David. He was a great host, taking the time to teach us about his boat and how to sail. Definitely recommend this experience.

I booked this for my boyfriend who loves sailing while here on vacation and he loved it. David is a great host. Booking and logistics of getting there were super easy with great communication.

Captain David and his sailing experience was spectacular! He clearly loves interacting with his guests and teaching them how to sail if they are open to it. Lake Travis was beautiful and fun to swim in, the sailboat was clean and spacious, and David provided drinks and fun stories! If you’re looking for a memorable adventure, Captain David has your back! He will also give you some awesome Polaroids to take home with you. Highly recommend this excursion!

Sailing with David on his 30' "Old School" boat was a wonderful experience! My wife and I celebrated our anniversary on the lake, relaxing and enjoying the water and the peaceful surroundings. I would highly recommend him and this outing - great value and a great time!

David as a captain and this sailing adventure was “Awesome”. I would recommend David and his boat “Old School” to couples that like to experience real sailing. He allowed my wife and I both to take the helm and really sail. But if you are looking to just sit back and enjoy the sound of the water and wind in your sails, you can do that. Great experience.
