ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising
ANSA teaches ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising over a 3-day weekend, across multiple weekends, or during the week. The class will be taught on an O’day 30, a Hunter 31, or similar boat (30′ to 40′ 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 in advance, watch online videos and practice knots, before and between classes.
Physically capable of performing duties under conditions presented.
ASA 101 certification, including a minimum of 24 hours on the water sailing in addition to the ASA 101 class time.
