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 our Silver Fleet boats in San Francisco Bay. 

At the Basic Keelboat level, you'll learn sailing terminology and its applications, knots, points of sail, rules of the road, introduction to docking, and more.

After learning sailing fundamentals in Basic Keelboat, refine and expand your skills in preparation to charter 30 to 32-foot sailboats on your own. The second half of the week covers the Basic Coastal Cruising curriculum and includes docking, maneuvering under power, heaving-to, crew overboard recovery, reefing (both underway and hove-to), correcting for weather helm, current and tide analysis, basic navigation, and chart work. Upon successful completion of the class, students who are also Modern Sailing club members are eligible to charter boats up to 32’ in length from our fleet.

All of your class time is hands-on training under the guidance of a US Coast Guard-licensed instructor. This class is limited to 4 students.

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

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.

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • 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.
