Intermediate Sailing: Moderate winds from East 10mph. Some experience required. Possible spinnaker set.
Sailing Plan: You steer the boat as we sail across the wind, taking turns on the tiller, learning to steer and turn. Then we will head upwind toward Mansfield Dam and the Oasis. After an hour upwind, we will begin our downwind return, then dropping sails and motoring safely to our harbor dock. Back before rush hour!
Allow for traffic. We leave the dock 15 minutes after Meetup time.
Bathroom Break: Take one before this two hour cruise. A good place is our bath house under the Clubhouse, beyond the metal steps.
What to Bring: Camera, sun protection, sunglasses, sneakers, drinks, snack. Swimsuit for pool or lake.
Office Staff: Please do not bother them.
Directions to Austin Yacht Club: Find Ranch Road 620; go south to the dam and one mile beyond to the traffic light at Hudson Bend Road. Turn right on Hudson Bend & go ONE mile only!(small grocery store on right) Turn right on Beacon Drive & go one mile and thru the AYC gate.
At the clubhouse parking lot, turn right (East) toward the water. ( If you need the bathroom, park by the playground) Then drive down to the 2nd ramp on the left, near the blue wind sock. Drive down and around to the water's edge. Park & Lock. Find the far Left Dock.
We are at the LEFT DOCK, OUTER DOCK, 4th boat on the left (green sail cover)
