American Sailing Association logoCaptain John teaches the ASA required material AND also the skills that he has gained from many personal experiences. Safety is a big part of the instructions you will receive. The reason for learning to sail is to have FUN and enjoy the beautiful waterways of the world that God has given us. Thank you for allowing us to share our knowledge with you.
