History of New Orleans Yacht Experience
Native New Orleanians Doug and Rena headed for the island of Tortola to find their dream boat. And now they want to share her with you in this enchanting city they call home.
Come aboard our 47 foot Beneteau sailboat, “Roux Stir,” named for the key ingredient of a delicious, heart-warming gumbo.
Cruise Director, co-owner and the wife of Captain Doug, Rena is a certified yoga and Pilates instructor, who finds sailing to be refreshing and cathartic… the ultimate escape from the monkeys of the mind. “Sailing takes you away from your problems. You’re in the moment, breathing more fully, with all of your senses alive. It is meditation on the water.”
We love our city for all of its charms, friendly folks and fabulous food. Our family and friends are here, and for us there is no place like home. To be able to share this aspect of New Orleans on Lake Pontchartrain is truly a treat.
Come sail with us and see where the wind takes you.
We took a chance on something new in NOLA, and it was well worth the gamble. Such a beautiful, peaceful evening – and we were treated like royalty! It was just what we needed to de-stress and re-focus on us. We are planning our next trip within the next month…might even become a “habit”…sailing was smooth, snacks were fabulous, and the company was awesome.
If we could give them more stars, we would. Every aspect of the sail was top notch. Service was awesome, Captain Doug and Rena are great hosts and cruising the lake is a beautiful way to see New Orleans. Just a fantastic experience.
Such a rush! I have never been sailing before, and I was a bit apprehensive, as I have gotten motion sickness in the past. Captain Doug and Rena made me feel so at ease, giving me some safety tips and offerening me fresh ginger in case I felt sea sick. And as soon as we set sail, I felt calm and at peace. Thankfully, no sea sickness! This was such a cool experience. Everyone should try it!
