Sails are held by reservation on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings, and passengers should arrive at Geist Lake Marina by 6:15 p.m. for a 6:30 p.m. departure. Check out the Evening Sail brochure for information on what to bring; sails are BYOB.
Dauntless Sailing School
After a day of tending to his technology company, Todd Bracken relaxes the way many CEOs do: by diving into another business venture. For Todd, that means sharing his passion for sailing and windblown hairstyles through Dauntless Sailing School, where he imparts his more than 20 years of experience to students of all experience levels. Docked at Geist Lake Marina, his 28-foot performance cruiser is equipped with a full galley and private bathroom. Eschewing classroom instruction, Todd prefers to give each student as much hands-on experience as possible, teaching them how to navigate the winds blowing across Geist Reservoir. In addition to beginner through advanced lessons, the captain also leads more adventurous outings that include multi-day sails on the Great Lakes, regattas, and coastal cruises around the Florida Keys.
