Basic Keelboat (ASA 101) – $595

Join the fun of hoisting the sails and casting off from the docks! No previous experience necessary, and by the second day you’ll be saying things like ‘ease the main sheet’ and ‘hard-a-lee’!  Becoming a sailor can bring so many wonderful experiences and people into your life…just wait to see where it takes you!

Learn on the official American Sailing Association teaching boat; the Beneteau First 22, which no other school nearby has to offer

This fun, appealing, modern and easy boat has been designed to entice aspiring new sailors to discover the world of sailing. The ASA First 22 is a product of the collaboration between Beneteau’s design team and the input of ASA’s schools and instructors.

The boat features include

  • a very large extended cockpit that easily fits four students and an instructor.
  • The hull is stiff, virtually unsinkable due to positive flotation, and it’s shape aids stability.
  • The deck and rig were designed specifically for sail training.
  • There are tons of ergonomic and safety innovations that will ensure sailing lessons will be comfortable and safe.
  • The boat has a swing keel – ideal for shallow water venues and it makes trailering the boat very practical.

$595 per person; $1950 for four ($400 savings)


Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103) – $695

Prerequisite: ASA101, or skills and knowledge to pass challenge exam.
