We believe sailboats and sailors are happiest out on the water—not in the slip! That is why you get expert instruction at a beginner level on how to safely take the boats in and out, as seen here by student sailors, Ellen (skipper) and Shara (crew). We offer FAST classes focused exclusively on docking if you want to build your confidence, @americansailing Docking Endorsement courses, and can even teach you on your boat.

Coastal Navigation demystifies chart reading and trip plotting. We’ll teach you how to plan a sailing vacation anywhere in the world using local charts for relevance. This is a shore-based class, that will enhance your ASA103, ASA104, or ASA106 experience and can be taken anytime with no prerequisite. Once you master navigating in a traditional way, using it in practical navigation situations when aboard becomes more fun and enriching! Want to learn more?
