We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.
Have you found yourself bitten by the sailing bug, imagining buying a boat of your own to sail over far horizons? Are you harboring big dreams to charter abroad, cross oceans, or sail around the world? In this article, learn about the best ways to get prepared for cruising adventures and receive some words of advice and inspiration from experienced Modern sailors in our community.
Are you considering sailing lessons and weighing the pros and cons of private lessons versus public courses or clinics? Here are five of the reasons why one or more private lessons may be ideal to help you achieve your personal sailing goals.
- Clinics are for adults only. Students must be 18 years old to participate.
- To secure a spot in the clinic, students must pay the fee in full.
- Modern Sailing will allow members and non-members to enroll in most Clinics.
