Re: Where are all the Texas Padre Island Cruisers

Island Moorings Marina or the port Aransas Municipal Marina, both located on Mustang Island. Also, there is the Padre Island Yatch Club on North Padre Island and the Corpus
Christi Municipal Marina on the west side of the bay. There is a small Marina normally full at Ingleside and a yatch club and municipal Marina in Rockport.
There is an anchorage at Shamrock cove on Mustang Island with some protection from NE to SE winds, exposed to the SW.
Hope this helps,
John

Hi everyone Im new to this site. I sail the Aransa bay/ Corpus Christi Bay area a lot . I keep my boat at the Island Mooring Marina. Great place if you have never been there. It has awesome amenities including a fantastic Bar, for after sailing of course. I hope to see you there.

s/vchaser We are in the san patricio navigation district marina in Aransas Pass right now. Moving to Island moorings next week and I can't wait! Hot showers and a hot tub!!!!! Liveaboards aren't allowed at San Pat marina and most of my learning to sail has been trips to Island moorings or Rockport municipal marina to use their free self serve pump outs every week. It's as good an excuse as any to sail right? My wife and I own a Ranger 29 sailboat named chaser and commute down to Corpus every week from Lubbock. She is a college professor there and my job is taking care of the ranch and her. I'm like an unpaid chauffeur I guess. haha. We sail a lot so if any of you want to meet up just let me know. I have learned the ICW in that area pretty well and with a 5.6 foot draft believe me I have learned the hard way. Haven't had to call the tow boat yet though. Thankfully. This weekend we're going up to House of boats to clean the bottom and change my prop then off to Island moorings as soon as I'm done. Hope to meet some of you.

Has anyone ever sailed out of the texas coast to the Caribbean Islands or Yucatan Peninsula? Where would you set off out of? I hear theres a lot of traffic out of Galveston...

Thanks!
The most traffic is getting from Galveston Bay out to the Gulf - you have to cross the ferry boat route and they move a lot faster than you would think. Once you get out of the ship channel, there's not much traffic - most of the big ships out in the safely fairlane are at anchor, waiting for the pilot to come get them.
Where do you plan to put your boat until you are ready to leave? Just leave from wherever that is. If you are going to sail to the Caribbean, you need to have a variety of experiences anyway.

HermitScott I have a friend who is a Navy pilot. He is living on his boat at PortA marina. He has to move at the end of this month. He plans on going to Island Moorings for the last month he is stationed here. He is in a transient slip so the season for that is over. It is unfortunate that the day I move in, he has to move out.
He helped me install a new furler today. I have only been sailing with the main since all my headsails have luff tape. I have twin 150s and a double grooved furler. I can't wait to try it out.

We look forward to sailing in the gulf(which we have never done) and meeting some new friends in Port A. We plan to sail to South Padre as soon as all the college kids vacate from spring break.
We have no experience sailing and hope to crew some before we take off on our own. I'd really rather not learn sailing in the gulf on my own.
We have our boat over at Island Moorings in Port A. Perhaps we will cross paths before long.

Lostmt Wookie,

There is a boat here at Clarks in Port O'Connor that fits the description of your boat black hull and all. Is this your ketch?

I stopped to visit with the crew for a few minutes. Seems that they are having engine problems and were stuck out in the bay last night. Got a tow into Clark's and had some help coming.

Nice bunch of young people on board. I couldn't stay to long and visit as the wife had just got off work and wanted to head home.

David
