ASA 104 Bareboat Chartering | Modern Sailing School

ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising

3 days / 2 nights, Fri - Sun

Take your chartering to the next level! Gain experience handling larger monohull boats and sailing at night. This 3-day, 2-night course will prepare you for international charter vacations and overnights on San Francisco Bay.

On the first day of the course, students will plan their weekend ahead and shop for provisions. After some docking practice, students will set sail that afternoon for their first anchorage. On Saturday morning, the boat and its various systems are examined before setting off for a sail to the next destination, giving students a chance to practice new navigation skills. Students will prepare one dinner aboard and enjoy one dinner ashore at one of the many dockside restaurants around the bay.

The second night is spent at anchor and tests are administered aboard the boat during the morning of the final day. Students will also work on more advanced crew overboard recovery methods before sailing back to Sausalito.

Upon completion of this course, you will receive your internationally recognized ASA 104 certification. Students who are Modern Sailing club members will be eligible to charter boats in our Platinum Fleet (38' and above) and Gold Fleet (33' - 37') for overnight charters.

The prerequisites for this course are completion of ASA 101, ASA 103, and at least 6 on-the-water days. These on-the-water days can be completed in various ways, either through chartering on your own, co-skippering with another club member (up to two skippers per charter permitted), a 4-hour minimum private lesson with an instructor, or participation in a sailing skills clinic. Students with comparable experience also have the option to submit a sailing resume to waive this requirement.

Testimonials

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • 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 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.
