Launch points at Port Aransas Texas
- I'm picking up my first beachcat tomorrow and will be heading down to the Texas coast (Port Aransas area) next weekend. I'm looking to find a good boat ramp to launch from since I don't have any beach wheels and I've never sailed in the surf. I'm thinking of the Bay behind Mustang Island. I'll be staying at Port Royal. Anyone have any suggestions?
- I usually wear two Capilene shirts under my drysuit. short sleeve first
and then a long sleeve on top. For pants I wear shorts or if it is a
little colder I wear some water wicking long pants. Keep in mind I sail
in So Cal so it is never really cold here.
