Currently, ANSA teaches ASA 101 Basic Keelboat and ASA 103 Coastal Cruising as a combined class. The class is taught and offers 6 on the water (OTW) days of sailing. The OTW portion of the class is typically broken into AM (0900-13:00) and PM (1300-1700) sessions with 4 students to 1 instructor ratio. The class will be taught on Martha Jean or similar boat. If you already have your ASA 101 certification and looking to get your 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 within designated waters 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 video and practice knots, etc. between classes.
