Open House

You are invited to join us at Pier 121 Marina on Lake Lewisville for a day of FREE sailing. We will be sailing the Hinckley Competition 41 and the J-24’s. The public is invited. Please feel free to bring family & friends.


Magellan Sailing Center, Inc. provides several opportunities to experience sailing and our sailing programs. A sailing vessel will be leaving the dock approximately every hour (on-the-hour) for a 90 minute sail.

  • Sail a Hinckley Competition 41:
    Southern Cross, our Hinckley Competition 41 is available for captained charters. The Hinckley Competition 41 is a classic and simply must be experienced. Sail on her once, you’ll understand …enough said!
  • Sail a J-24:
    This is the outstanding sailing vessel we use for our exclusive lessons. Come check it out!
