Skills Enhancement Participation
Have you ever wanted to go sailing but felt that you do not have experience or access to a sailboat? Have you been out on the water on a sailboat and wanted to learn more about taking an active role during sailing?
TASS (Texas Association of Social Sailors) offers a chance to learn the basics skills and test as you can take to the water to see if this is a suitable activity. Our skills enhancement sails offer a fun, relaxed setting without investing in a boat or taking expensive lessons. This is also an ideal opportunity to invite friends who always wanted to go sailing but felt they first wanted to acquire some basic skills.
