ASA 106, Advanced Coastal Cruising

4 Days / 3 Nights, Thurs - Sun

Are you ready to discover ocean sailing and explore the coast? Our ASA 106, Advanced Coastal Cruising course will give you the skills and confidence you’ll need for safe and successful coastal expeditions.

Depending on weather and sea state, this course takes you beyond the Golden Gate to Drakes Bay and the Farallon Islands, then down to Half Moon Bay and back within 4 days. Aboard Coho II, our Spencer 44 bluewater cruiser, you'll practice night sailing, chart navigation, electronic piloting, and anchoring. Learn float plan development, advanced sail trim, weather analysis, heavy weather techniques, emergency procedures, and more. Boat systems and troubleshooting are also covered, with an emphasis on the problem-solving skills that are essential to self-sufficient coastal cruising.

Testimonials

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
