ASA 101 & ASA 103 Combo Course | Modern Sailing School

ASA 101/103, Basic Keelboat Sailing and Basic Coastal Cruising Combination Course

5 days, Mon - Fri (9am - 5pm)

The ASA 101/103 combination course is a five-day intensive program, a fast track to quickly prepare you to charter boats up to 32 feet in length within San Francisco Bay. You'll learn Basic Keelboat Sailing fundamentals - sailing terminology and its applications, knots, points of sail, rules of the road, introduction to docking, and more. With the Basic Coastal Cruising curriculum, you'll refine and expand your skills with practice maneuvering under power, heaving-to, crew overboard recovery, reefing sails (both underway and hove-to), correcting sail trim for weather helm, tide and current analysis, and an introduction to basic chart navigation. 

You will receive hands-on training under the guidance of a US Coast Guard-licensed ASA instructor. Class size is limited to 4 students. Upon successful completion of this combination course, students who are also Modern Sailing club members are eligible to charter our Silver Fleet sailboats (30 - 32’).

There are three ways to sign up for this course - by phone (415) 331-8250, email, or by clicking the link below.

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.

  • 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.

  • Ray Arceneaux

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