ASA 101 Sailing Made Easy

ANSA teaches ASA 101 over 3 days, either on a long weekend, across two weekends, or during the week. Each class is taught mostly on the water (OTW) and offers 3 days of sailing.  The class will be taught on an O’day 30, Hunter 31, or similar boat (30′ to 34′ length), with a wheel helm.

As a 101 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. before and between classes.


Physically capable of performing duties under conditions presented.
