Windsong Sailing Academy blends the educational and the recreational aspects of sailing. It is a formula that has inspired lifelong passions in several former students. One student abandoned his corporate life to sail the Caribbean with his son, and another couple spent their retirement as the co-captains of an Island Packet 38 sailboat, boating past Miami, the Bahamas, and several countries recently acquired by Tom Hanks.
Over the course of Windsong?s 27 years of nautical adventures, Captain Dave Crumbley and his team have still sought to instill both knowledge and passion for the sport they love. With their educational courses, you?ll learn both theory and technique, and you can choose to take a program that can lead to certification with the American Sailing Association. For pure buoyant bliss, board one of Windsong?s themed outings on Lake Lanier, which have included a murder mystery, a Jamaican-music night, and a storytelling voyage.
The courteous staffers at River Tubing pair up customers with comfortable, dual-chamber tubes perfect for warm days spent on the calm waters of the Chattahoochee River. Two-, four-, and six-hour tubing trips take place seven days a week on stretch of river between Rogers Bridge and Medlock Bridge populated with wildlife including beavers, turtles, and otters. Shuttles carry customers and their gear to the drop-in spot and return them to the rental station at the end of the trip. While on the water, guests can sip drinks from coolers, connect their tubes to those of friends, hop out and swim, or issue speeding tickets to fast-moving schools of trout.
On the shores of Lake Hartwell, Harbor Light Marina's fleet of 16 new boats waits to cut through the water. Strictly maintained fishing boats, deck boats, and pontoons ferry fishermen or parties into the lake's middle or around its 1,000-mile shoreline, acting as suitable bases for catching striped bass or honing a cannonball. Icons of leisure, the pontoons vary in size to fit each guest's needs, the largest checking in at 28 feet—long enough to fit 16 passengers or set up an eye chart to test the captain’s vision. And all the vessels park in the marina's slips, alongside spaces rented out to other local aquanauts.
