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.

The Advanced Cruising & Seamanship textbook is included with your purchase of this course and will be mailed to you. If you wish to pick up your textbook in person or if you sign up less than a week from the first day of your course, please contact our office. Optionally, you may purchase the Advanced Cruising & Seamanship e-book directly from the ASA. Advance study of your textbook will enhance your success in this course. The Annapolis Book of Seamanship by John Rousmaniere is also recommended reading but is not required.

Testimonials

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • 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.

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.
