SAILING EVERY WEEKEND! TASS members sail virtually every weekend! TASS charters boats for our members and guests:
- half-day leisure sails
- full-day leisure sails
- crew training sails
- moonlight sails (usually near date of a full moon!)
- and weekend sailing trips
TASS Charterboat sails. We offer leisure sails, training sails, working sails, and regatta sails! TASS charters some great sailboats ranging up to 50 feet in length. Depending on the boat, there's usually 6-10 on board. Registration/payment for a sail can be done online here at our website or at the TASS weekly meeting. Prior sailing experience IS NOT NECESSARY! You can relax and just observe. Or, participate as much as you wish. We offer classes on-the-water (and other classes as well) to develop your sailing skills: beginner, intermediate, and advanced crew training sails. TASS skippers are qualified, have experienced crew on board, and have been approved by the TASS Board to serve as skippers for TASS club-chartered sails.
How to Register? Registration for a sail is is easy. Sign up here on our website or at a TASS weekly meeting. Click Calendar of Events and select a sail! The TASS skipper for your boat will contact you (generally 1 day prior to the sail) to confirm boat name/location, boarding time, departure time, and answer any question you may have regarding the sail. Our weekend sails are usually scheduled for sailing Galveston Bay. We charter out of the Kemah and League City TX area. The the charter company name and location are listed and linked to maps on your online event registration.
What to Bring on a sail? Suggested items: wear good deck shoes for traction (no black soles please!), sunglasses, sun lotion, lipbalm, hat or visor; bring a light jacket (it's about 10 degrees cooler on the water), rain gear if rain forecast, and sea sickness medication if you are prone to motion sickness. (Dramamine or Bonine are available without a prescription, saltine crackers, and gingersnap cookies all help with this too!) Provide food and beverage for yourself (use softsided cooler or use boat's cooler), and some to share if you wish (optional). A camera or cellphone for taking pictures is fun to have on board.
