Night Sailing: Tuesday on Lake Travis; Everyone Drives!

  • Aug 6, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sailing Plan: You steer the boat as we sail across the wind, taking turns on the tiller, learning to steer, tacking as needed. Then we will head down toward Starnes Island to watch the sunset. As darkness descends we will return, night sailing, dropping sails and returning safely to our harbor dock. 

Note: Bring a small FLASHLIGHT or headlamp to find your way off the dock and back to your car.

Extra Slots often open at noon on the day before so please sign up for the wait list.

Suggestions:

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. FLASHLIGHT! 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 toward the water. (park by the playground if you need the bathroom) then drive down to the 2nd ramp on the left, near the blue wind sock. Drive down around to the water's edge. Park & Lock. Find the far Left Dock.

We are at the LEFT DOCK, 4th boat on the left (green sail cover)

If lost, call Hector[masked]-8463. Welcome Aboard!

    Two boats sailed out on Lake Travis tonight.
    We had several no shows but still took two boats
    Winds were mild and steady. We had a nice cruise around the island and then up toward the dam.

    Had a great time! Everyone is so nice, and sensitive to my nerves after years of not sailing. Thank you all!
