Sailing Schools in the Kemah/Clear Lake/Seabook/Houston Area

Hey, I am new! Zero sailing experience (aside from being a passenger/guest), but want to learn.

Any recommendations for/against schools in the Kemah/Clear Lake/Seabook/Houston area?

I did a search, and the last recommendations where like 3 years old, so I figured I would see if anyone had an updated opinion.

Thanks in advance

+1 on Sacketts....the owner, Glenn, is a super nice dude. He is been in Watergate Marina...well, forever.
Both schools mentioned are fine and both have boats you can charter after you get your "wings".
Have fun and as mentioned...welcome to S.N.

Cool. Actually Sacketts' prices look better than Southcoast. I'm sold!
