47 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
The North Texas Sailing School has been in continuous service since its founding in 1975. NTSS is located on the east shore of Lake Ray Hubbard in Heath, Texas.
We utilize 8 boats in the service of sailing instruction and support vessels. We currently have 9 certified sailing instructors on our staff, along with professional teaching staff that assist in the summer programs.
We are Number One in course content and structure and have a strong emphasis on classroom instruction before each on-water experience. The curriculum is a rich blend of technical skill, confidence building, and plain old common sense.
We love sailing and we love teaching sailing. We look at teaching as a lifelong learning
process and are dedicated to growing and serving the sport of sailing. We are
committed to introducing sailing to new enthusiasts including our youth and have a
strong emphasis on good seamanship, particularly safe handling of a boat in all weather
conditions. Continual mentoring of our students throughout their sailing careers sets us
all up for success. We also want to provide existing sailors with as many resources as
possible, and provide an on-line community where DFW residents can find information
about sailing activities. We look forward to hearing from you.
