Did you know you could learn to sail while enjoying a holiday in the sun? Delaune Sailing Charters of Mandeville, Louisiana, offers private sailing charters for up to six passengers, booking trips 7 days a week. Captain Rick Delaune will take you and five of your friends and family--only--on 2.5 hour excursions on Lake Pontchartrain for a Midday Trip or a Sunset Sail.
