2021 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.

Testimonials

  • 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.

  • Rolf Zingg

    Since many, many years, I had the dream to sail underneath the Golden Gate bridge. On October 14th last year, my dream became true. Thanks to our dear friend Aaron Fritz who made it possible and organized this cruise for us. With this adventure I was able to achieve one more milestone on my sailing career.

    Finally on the water, it was great! Full moon made the flows even stronger and it was like sailing in a washing machine.

    I did my sailing education in the English Channel, where the situation with the wind and flows is comparable to the San Francisco Bay. So I felt pretty much "at home" being on the helm in the Bay.

    I hope our skipper Stan Lander enjoyed this day cruise too. We, definitely did! It was an unforgettable experience for all of us.

    A very big thank you to all of you who made it possible, that my dream became reality! Also thank you for the MSC flag I got at the end of the day. It found it's place in my study, where I can see it daily.

  • Trudy Flores

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.
