October 2019 ASA Instructor Qualification Clinics - Enrollment Open!


Exemplify The Spirit of the Sailing Community - Become an ASA Instructor

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.

  • 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 Clark

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.

  • Esther C

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.
