ASA 101, Basic Keelboat Sailing

2 weekends, Sat & Sun (9am - 3:30pm)

Learn to Sail on San Francisco Bay

With a regular 25 knots of wind, strong currents, and heavy shipping traffic, San Francisco Bay offers one of the most challenging sailing venues in the world. With the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz in the background, ASA 101 will give you the experience and skills you need to enjoy sailing in a variety of conditions - with confidence. This sailing 101 course provides the skills you'll need to enjoy active participation as crew in the operation of a sailboat. Learn sailing terminology and its applications, essential knots, points of sail, navigation rules, docking basics, and more. This is an American Sailing Association certified course. 

Your four days of hands-on training will be under the guidance of a US Coast Guard-licensed and ASA certified sailing instructor. Courses consist of lecture and mostly hands-on training while sailing our Silver Fleet vessels (30 to 32 feet). Upon successful completion of this course, you will be well on your way to becoming a skipper on San Francisco Bay and beyond.

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.

  • Danny Collins

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • 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!
