ASA 101

Our Basic Sailing course consists of 20 hours of instruction designed for the student with limited or no experience in sailing and will qualify members for chartering. Included are 8 hours of classroom lecture emphasizing nautical terminology, aerodynamics of sail, boating safety, rules of the road, radio procedure, anchoring and heavy weather survival.

In addition, students exercise practical sailing skills in 12 hours of lab sessions aboard 30ft boats, with emphasis on sailing maneuvers, docking procedures and “man-overboard” recovery techniques.

An additional one hour lab emphasizing Aventura charter policies, boat systems, and safety is given to current and prospective members. After this, you can charter sailboats as big as 32 ft (refer to “Certification Information for Chartering” section).
