ASA 101 Basic Keelboat (Beginner/Novice Course)

This introductory sailing course is designed to give students a broad but thorough introduction to sailing.

This course offers students classroom instruction and on-the-water instruction. Students commit to two initial full days of classroom and on-the-water instruction with four additional half-days of instruction. Initial course days typically take place over one weekend (Saturday/Sunday) with occasional weekday and consecutive weekend course options. This course allows students to become ASA certified. Students have the option to take their written and practical certification exams at any time.

SOUL Sailing students may select from any available 4-Hour Sailing Lesson to schedule their four half-day lessons allowing much greater flexibility in scheduling their instructional time. We strongly encourage students to complete the course hours within four weeks of scheduling the initial class.
