When I was in Vietnam with the US Army. For relaxation, special services provided sailboats for us to use. When I returned from overseas and started managing Sears stores, it was a great therapy to get out on the water. What?s your favorite part of your job? Watching the faces of my customers change after a lesson or rental. They are so much more relaxed. It is like a mental massage for them. It is a great stress-buster to get out on the water. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? Being part of a class and enjoying in the team-building fun. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? My dad was a naval commander. I was born in the Oakland Naval Yard. I built my first boat when I was 8 years old. My wife and I both hold a 50 ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains License. We have spent 150 days in a 25-foot sailboat circumnavigating Florida. I love the peace being on the water brings.

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.
