ANSA teaches ASA 101 Basic Keelboat and ASA 103 Coastal Cruising as a combined class. The class is taught on the water (OTW) and offers 6 days of sailing. The class will be taught on Martha Jean or similar boat. If you already have ASA 101 certification and just require ASA 103 or have any other questions please email the Rear Commodore for Training (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As a 101/103 student, you are trained to crew an inboard auxiliary powered sailing vessel on local waters (Magothy River, Chesapeake Bay) during daylight hours within sight of land in moderate wind and sea conditions. This class focuses on teaching while sailing versus classroom lectures. To make this possible, the student is expected to study independently, read the textbook, watch online videos and practice knots, etc. between classes.
Physically capable of performing duties under conditions presented.
