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 Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!
