ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising

ANSA teaches ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising as a 3-day weekend format.   The class will be taught on an O’day 30, a Hunter 31, or similar boat (30′ to 34′ length) with a wheel helm.

As a 103 student, you are trained to crew an inboard auxiliary powered sailing vessel on local waters (Magothy River, West 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.
