2023 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

  • Emma & George Stubbs, Sausalito

    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.

  • 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.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
