Our sailing curriculum is designed to develop competent sailors. We strongly believe in developing fundamental sailing skills prior to progressing to intermediate & advanced certifications, To ensure unsurpassed instruction we are a comprehensive ASA Certification facility Our Basic Sailing courses are taught on Lake Lewisville. After completing the Basic Keelboat Sailing Certification course you will want to practice before moving on to the next level of certification, our J-24's are available to our graduates for lease or rent. The next certification level (Basic Cruising) is also taught on Lake Lewisville. We use a 34 foot Cruising Sailboat. After completing this second certification this course, the same boat may be available for you to charter for a day or for the weekend. Our Bareboat Courses & Advanced Sailing Courses are only taught on the ocean, You can not conduct a quality bareboat course on local lakes in North Texas. We simply refuse to do it! Those sailors already holding a current ASA certification may Challenge the other standard and pursue a dual certification path. Refresher courses are available for those sailors with exoerience but wantina a little brush-uo on their skills,
