We are an ASA Certified School
ASA accredited sailing schools are authorized to offer the internationally recognized ASA keelboat certification system and are held to the highest standards in the sailing education world. All ASA sailing schools are required to pass a rigorous application process, conduct their businesses in an ethical and professional manner, and must pass an on site evaluation that requires a well maintained facility that accommodates its students in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to learning. ASA accredited sailing schools also must have clean, well-maintained vessels that are safety checked by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary annually and must employ ASA certified sailing instructors and ensure that all hold a U.S. Coast Guard captain’s license (where applicable). They are champions of a cooperative effort to elevate sail training to the highest standards possible.
