Sea Star Base Galveston is calling all interested students, age 14 and up, to join the Community Sailing Program that meets each Saturday, 2-4:30pm.
Sea Star Base Galveston, located at 7409 Broadway on Offatt’s Bayou, is the premier sailing location for novice and experienced sailors. Regardless of experience, the Community Sailing Program offers the opportunity to learn new skills during regular practices and enjoy large keel boat outings. Licensed Captain Mike Janota, program director, encourages anyone who would like to learn how to sail, as well as those who would like to refine their skills, to become a Crew member.
Sailors are asked to meet on the breezeway every Saturday ready to sail. Boats provided by Sea Star Base Galveston include FJ’s, Picos, Sonars, and a number of large boats to choose from. The only skill required is the desire to learn to sail. Sailors are advised to bring sunscreen and hat and to dress appropriately. Participants must be 14 years and older.
Annual Crew (student) membership is $200 and benefits include sailing, swimming pool, volleyball court, and kayaks. Water safety equipment is provided.
Sea Star Base Galveston is a high adventure marine and maritime destination offering aquatic education programs that instill lifetime leadership, teamwork skills, and independence in body, mind, and spirit. Memberships are available and year-round programs include sailing, kayaking, and Boater’s Education Classes. Upcoming events include Reach Sailing Camp and Meet a Mariner Day.
