Það sem verður gert

"Social distance", in style. Given corona concerns, I am currently limiting this experience to 4 guests. It’s a great double date.

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 the 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 trim 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. Sailing teaches you to roll with the conditions and we will have a great time either way. As the time gets near, we will drop sails and motor into the marina, where you can enjoy the view or head to a nearby restaurant.

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 50 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.

This was our first sailing experience and something we want to check off of our bucket list, and it couldn't have been better. David was so informative, patient and fun to sail win. It was a beautiful day to sail, and what made it special was he effort to go an extra mile to make it personal and intimate for us. Loved the pictures and the videos he gave us :)

Great experience. Now I have the bug to do some more sailing! Other reviews are accurate in saying David is very patient with newbs and our bonehead moves, such as why isn't this winch pulling? ztZtZtzt! ZZtZZt!! Oh yeah, you spool them up CLOCKWISE dur. Also, my 10yo son had a great time as well.

My husband and I had such an amazing time sailing with David! We lucked out because the weather was beautiful and the was a good amount of wind for most of the ride. David was so friendly and easy to talk to. He let us sail the boat for awhile and taught us what we needed to know. Would definitely recommend this experience to everyone!

We had the best sailing experience on the old school with David. As a group of 3, We were very well accommodated. Had a blast learning to sail and getting to know David. This certainly peaked our interest in sailing even more and we will definitely do this again.

I have had a 20ish year long dream of learning to sail so we booked this experience for my birthday weekend. We didn’t have much wind but still had a great time and learned so much about sailing. It was a great first lesson!

We booked this birthday-weekend sail because I’ve had a 20 year dream of learning! We didn’t have much wind but we were still able to learn a good bit and and enjoy a relaxing day. I can’t wait to go out again!

Aðgerðaráðlegging

Sérfróðir samstarfsaðilar innan geirans
Öll ævintýri samræmast viðmiðum iðnaðarins. Við hófum samstarf við Adventure Travel Trade Association, leiðandi sérfræðinga í ævintýraferðum, við mótun starfsvenja og öryggisviðmiða.
Þekktu eigin þægindamörk
Athugaðu að það stafar áhætta af öllu sem fer fram utandyra og að þú getur lent í hættulegum aðstæðum í þessari upplifun. Gakktu úr skugga um að þú getir tekið þátt á öruggan hátt miðað við hæfni þína og skilyrði (til dæmis staðsetningu, veður og búnað).

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.
