ANSA prides itself on offering high-quality instruction at an affordable price.  Our on the water (OTW) training is given on boats ranging from 30′ to 44′ in length. We use chartered boats with private cabins for our overnight classes.

Two free club daysails come with every class to give our members more opportunity to get on the water and continue sailing past that certification.

Training classes are held throughout the sailing season. We start in winter with the ASA 105 Coastal Navigation course.
