Development Clinics

One Day, 9am - 3:30pm

Silver Fleet, Platinum Fleet, and Catamaran Development Clinics

Has it been awhile since you last sailed? Or have you recently taken ASA 103, ASA 104, or ASA 114, and need more time on the water to solidify your skills? If any of the scenarios below apply to you, a Development Clinic is for you!

  • You have successfully completed the course and would like more practice to increase your confidence prior to chartering.
  • Your instructor has recommended more practice in one or more skill areas in order for you to successfully complete your ASA certification or Fleet Certification Checkout.
  • Some time has passed since you've sailed or earned your certification and you would like a refresher of the essential skills.

Clinics include the practice of docking, steering, and sail trim on various points of sail, reefing, crew overboard recovery procedures, heaving-to, and standing turn maneuvers. There are three fleet sizes for you to choose from. Not sure where you fit in?  We would be happy to help you - email us or give us a call at (415) 331-8250.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.

  • Ray Arceneaux

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

  • 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.
