  • B Sailing
    B Sailing's origins go back nearly 40 years and 1,300 miles, when Alan Bates learned to sail on his father's boat on Lake Erie. His dad welcomed anyone aboard who had an interest in sailing, turning the boat into a de-facto sailing academy that ran both regattas and chartered pleasure cruises. Having gone on to race in the Great Lakes, along the Atlantic Coast, and in the Gulf of Mexico, Mr. Bates now continues his lifelong passion through B Sailing. Both students and members have access to a fleet of J/Boats, which are known for their stability, ease of operation, and sails stitched together from Blackbeard?s 400-thread-count bed sheets. Harbored at Seabrook Shipyard, these vessels glide onto Galveston Bay.

  • All Points of Sail Sailing School
    An affiliate school of the American Sailing Association, All Points of Sail Sailing School teaches students of all levels how to sail with confidence under the tutelage of experienced guides and instructors. Instructors sprinkle landlubbers with the knowledge necessary to tear through the water on any size vessel, ranging from large-keel boats to windsurfing boards and kayaks. The school's diverse coterie of courses covers crucial nautical subjects, including sailing certification, coastal navigation, chartering, and night sailing. The expert captains also lead charters through the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay as well as summer camps in which kids man kayaks and Sunfish sailboats to gain hands-on practice, which is believed to be the second-best teacher after self-hypnosis.

  • Sail Ventures
    Members of Sail Ventures take turns cruising in a fleet of new or late-model Jeanneau and Beneteau sailboats. The system, known as fractional yachting, teams up members who share their luxury vessels on a monthly basis. A rigorous training program ensures sailors are seaworthy, and the club picks up maintenance, slip fees, and other costs. Sail Ventures also hosts special membership events throughout the year, such as regattas, boat christenings, and boat-show parties.

  • Bay Area Sailing School
    The instructors at Bay Area Sailing School—an American Sailing Association–certified professional training facility—pass their love of sailing on to fledgling skippers in classes that range from entry-level basic keelboat sailing up to advanced coastal cruising. Based at Watergate Marina on Clear Lake, the school sends training boats out to make wake in Galveston Bay and churn the Gulf's salty waters. Students can build up their skills over time, graduating to bigger ships, mastering navigation tactics, and learning how to say "which way's north?" in dolphin. Eventually, thanks to Bay Area Sailing School's partnership with Sackett Sailing Center, they'll be able to rent boats at reduced membership rates and start enjoying the good sailing life.

  • Alternate Latitude
    The boom swings lugubriously, its shadow slicing across the sun-steeped white deck of the Alternate Latitude. Water chuckles against the double hulls of the Voyage 440 ship. In four cabins, air conditioners purr as the boat cuts towards the azure horizon, dwarfing the other catamarans on Galveston Bay. During chartered sailing trips, Captain Steve—who holds a 50-ton United States Coast Guard Masters License—and his crew steer the vessel as passengers lounge on trampolines on the deck and sip drinks. The ship, which was built in South Africa, now makes occasional cruises to the Virgin Islands. Queen-sized berths in each cabin cradle passengers during overnight trips and after chamomile-tea-drinking contests.

  • Sailaway Clear Lake Charters
    Kicking back on the deck of a boat is easy when all you have to worry about is the occasional wind gust and avoiding?or embracing?the occasional spray. At Sailaway Clear Lake Charters, the toughest decision clients make is how long they'd like to stay out on the water. During cruises, Captain Matt Ceviker?who has more than 30 years of sailing experience under his belt?takes the helm of the multi-hull boat, navigating through the sparkling waters of Galveston Bay and Clear Lake. Sailing guests are more than welcome to bring along snacks and alcoholic beverages. All utensils are provided, including ice, cups, and temporary gills.
