All Points of Sail Sailing School at Lakeside, offers 20+ years of training, sailing and having fun on Clear Lake, Galveston Bay and the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We have always felt that Galveston Bay holds the most advantageous sailing around. Sailing to East Bay, Trinity Bay and Redfish Reef are among the highlights of our ASA BKB class and upon completion join the only school in the area offering mentor sessions plus free charters to students. Also, we are now preparing for the British Virgin Islands Flotilla leaving December 2008 for New Year's at Foxies, one of the top Five spots in the world for New Year's Celebrations and then the San Juan Islands in June 2009. As a Note, our Texas Parks and Wildlife Certified Instructors teach the Texas Safe Boating Course every weekend, all year long.

Sounds like ya'll had a great time at Redfish. Hope I can get out on the water at least 1 or 2 more times before it gets too cold.
If you haven't already, check J's photos of Bayland Marina ... this is what happens when the water gets higher than the risers ... the floating docks ended up on shore with boats still attached!

Yes Redfish is still there! We had a nice anchor out with our buddies on Morning Star. Ate burned chicken; washed down with plenty of adult beverage. Had a great sunset and fabulous sail home today. If only I didn't have to work tomorrow.............

I am currently anchored out at Redfish Is. with Shibumi and a dozen or so other boats. Had a great night, light wind and a calm seas. The wind this morning is about 15 knots from the East. We will be sailing back this afternoon.

Glad to see you setup the site. I was looking into but you know how busy I am, on island time you know.

Ladye Im sure we have mutual acquaintances. Though I miss the loss of my marina neighbors and dread the drive through the speed traps, I do look forward to the ready access to the bay.

Tell the scallywag crew, T & D of Storyville hello if you see them. Im heading to Bayland to work on my boat.

Hi J, welcome. we know several in TMCA - good group. Several of us are in Watergate Marina - our boats did well, but the marina didn't. Glad you survived. You'll have easy access to the Bay now ;)

I thought maybe some here would be interested in TMCA, Texas Mariners Cruising Assoc. Im friends of some of the members and have met others in the group. They are a good bunch of people and are always active.

Ive given serious consideration to joining but given that I live 70 miles away feel that it would be tough making the meetings.

Hello neighbors

how yall be after that damn Ike?

My boat is still on the hard in Bayland Marina. Hopefully it will be wet in a week or two. As you may know the marina washed completely away and is no more.

I have a slip at Boardwalk and hope to be there Dec. 1. At Bayland we were a close group of good friends and we all are missing one another. Some of us are coming to Boardwalk and you will certainly be welcomed into our group.



Did you guys experience any damage?
