2020 ASA Instructor Qualification Clinic Schedule at a Glance

Get Paid To Share Your Passion

The famously friendly and supportive spirit of the sailing community is all about sailors helping sailors. Every sailor was a beginner once (or still is). We all have other sailors and mentors to thank for inspiring us with their passion, sharing their knowledge and skills, and helping us learn how to stay safe on the water while having fun.

Are you an experienced sailor, a USCG licensed captain (or qualified to become licensed), and ready to share your skills and passion for sailing with a new generation of sailors? Take your sailing to the next level and become an ASA-certified instructor!

Led by two of the best and most experienced Instructor Evaluators in the industry, captains Stan Lander and Bill Moreland, you will learn to teach sailing skills to ASA standards and to exemplify and multiply the sailing community's legacy of sailors helping sailors.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
