During two-hour sailing lessons aboard a J/24 sailboat on Lake Lewisville, instructors teach shipmates essential sailing lingo and impart the basics of boating safety. After a 10- to 15-minute classroom session students take to the waves and learn how sailboats function in the water, different points of sail, crew coordination, and how to tie basic knots if desired. See the full lesson schedule for class times and availability.
As waves churn in the mid-Atlantic, Captain Matt Meadows is hard at work. He has to deliver a sail boat to an eagerly awaiting customer at his destination port in Italy. Though the United States Coast Guard Master occasionally delivers boats domestic and abroad, his main passion is teaching. From his home base on Lake Lewisville, Captain Meadows and his team of skippers lead lessons ranging from intro to sailing classes all the way through advanced sailing certifications, during which they teach students essential sailing lingo, such as starboard and Pirates of the Caribbean. They also instruct on specialty concentrations such as celestial navigation and offshore sailing. They lead beginning and advanced racing lessons for students interested in performance sailing, and they also rent out their schooners for all sorts of occasions.
