I just wanted top send a shout-out to our instructor “Ron” who was absolutely professional and engaging. He took the time to make sure that we understood everything and gave us help when we needed it without being overbearing. We’ll be back for more classes. Great program . . . . great instructor.

Cam is a great instructor that immediately puts the group at ease. He has a calm demeanor that allows everyone to be calm. Cam has you learning to sail before you realize that you are learning. I spent 22 years in the military leading and training and I would follow Cam anywhere on the water!

The American Sailing Association is a group of sailors, sailing schools, and charter fleets. Our purpose is to bring organization and professional standards to the sailing industry. The association is dedicated to boating safety through education, to ensure that every sailor learns to sail properly and is able to prove the ability to sail. The heart of the ASA program is a comprehensive set of sailing standards, which are detailed in the ASA Sailing Log Book. These performance objectives allows sailors to be evaluated on their sailing knowledge and seamanship skills. But more importantly, through certification to these standards, the ASA provides the individual with a way to prove these abilities to rental and charter fleets throughout the country and around the world.
