Re: Galveston Bay and South Sailing
I'm glad to see this thread was revived. There are many places to go and see in the Galveston Bay and surrounding areas. For those of you who need a lift for your boat there is Seabrook Shipyard and another on NASA Rd 1, I don't remember the name right now. I have used Both sides of the ramp under the Kemah/Seabrook bridge to launch in the summer with no trouble. Launching when the is a north wind blowing is much more of a problem as the water is blown out of the bay. The TMCA (Texas Mariners Cruising Association) has a web site that lists many cruising destinations in the area with directions. If you Check Sail Ventures website they also have a very good listing of places to go all the way down to Rock Port. Bay sailing is fun and hopping the coast off shore in the Gulf is fun even on a smaller boat when the weather is right. Enjoy!
