Each time Captains DJ McCabe and Byron Hicks lead a sailing lesson, smiles of familiarity cross their faces at the sight of students' widening eyes as the sails catch wind and glide the boat across Lake Monroe. In the silence of the 9,406-acre freshwater lake, sailors can catch glimpses of rare wildlife as the vessel drifts past bathing manatees, soaring herons, and bald eagles snatching each other's toupees. A range of lessons taught by United States Coast Guard captains acquaint aspiring sailors with the trusty rigs, and more advanced students can sign up for certification courses, which follow ASA teaching curriculums to instill safe and steadfast sailing skills.

Students should allot four hours for the entire experience to allow for conflicting weather conditions or unexpected attacks from feral helium balloons.
