Just Ask!

ASA 101

This is the beginning class. This class will take the beginner student from no experience to being able to pilot a 35 foot cruiser in and out of the slip, raise, lower, and trim the sails, in daylight and moderate conditions. 

ASA 103

This class is the second in the certification process. 103 adds more sailing skills and practice, plus adds chart reading and navigation. VHF radio operations and additional knots are included. Additional docking sailing and sail trim practice in daylight moderate conditions are part of this class.  

ASA 104

This class goes in depth into the boat systems. We will examine the engine systems, (raw water, closed water, fuel ) house water system, head system, house and shore power systems. We will cover general maintenance and trouble shooting procedures. We will plan a trip to a nearby port and will travel to that port using dead reckoning procedures.

ASA 106

Apply what you learned in ASA 105 and get some real experience planning and executing an overnight sailing trip. Generally done with smaller groups.

ASA 105

This is a take home class; unfortunately we don't get to go sailing for this certification. This class will teach more in depth navigation skills. Chart reading, tide tables and course plotting. Offered at select times throughout the year based on demand. Please ask to get on the list!
