SAILING FUNDAMENTALS

Inland Sailing School offers courses that lead to advancing levels of American Sailing Association certification. We also offer private lessons tailored to the needs of the individual sailor. Our Sailing Fundamentals class contains the first two ASA levels of certification. A brief description of each is provided below. We offer them together because Basic Keelboat Sailing certification establishes a strong foundation in boat handling under sail which includes; points of sail, rigging, nomenclature, tacking, gybing, rules of the road, safety, and person overboard. Basic Coastal Cruising certification builds upon the sailing skills learned in Basic Keelboat Sailing and adds the docking, maneuvering, and motoring skills required while under auxiliary power. Teaching them together allows sailors to gain the sailing and auxiliary power skills necessary to maneuver within a marina and to move to open water for the pure sailing experience.

Basic Keelboat Sailing (ASA 101):

Learn to sail a boat in light to moderate winds and sea conditions in familiar waters without supervision. This is a preparatory level with no auxiliary power or navigation skills required. Course is approved by the National Association of Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and U.S. Coast Guard as a recognized Safe Boating Course. As such, it meets all requirements for mandatory education and licensing for every state in the United States. For boat owners, many insurance companies offer discounts for successful completion of a Safe Boating Course. Prerequisite: None.

Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103):

Learn to cruise safely in local and regional waters as both skipper and crew on an auxiliary (motor) powered sailboat of about 20 to 40 feet in length, in moderate winds and sea conditions. Builds upon the skills learned in Basic Keelboat Sailing. Prerequisite: Basic Keelboat Sailing Certification.

Provided materials: Sailing Fundamentals, by Gary Jobson, Official International Log Book, Basic Keelboat Sailing/Safe Boating Examination, and Basic Coastal Cruising Examination.

Sailing Fundamentals Class Schedule:

Each class meets for four sessions as follows: classroom 6:00 PM–10:00 PM Tuesday and Thursday evenings, on the water and classroom 9:00 AM–8:00 PM Saturday and 9:00 AM– 6:00 PM Sunday. Cost is $500 per person ($450 each, if two or more students register for the same class at the same time). Minimum of 2 students to make a class, maximum of 4. The enrollment deadline is two weeks before the first classroom. (There is some pre-work required).

Private Lessons

Any of the ASA classes are available as private lessons. Private lessons provided for those who do not desire an ASA certification. Examples of non-ASA certification private lessons are introduction to sailing, sailing skills refresher, and new boat orientation. Lesson fees: $75/hour (1-2 students); $25/hour for each additional student. Limited to 4 students per session.
