We get many calls requesting advice on which of the two sailing classes are appropriate for their skill level.  Often people have some sailing experience and are not sure where to start.  We also get people who have been sailing and chartering for a long time (in North America), but now wish to charter in Europe and need the European "International Proficiency sailing certificate" (available if you have the ASA Bareboat Chartering (ASA 104) certification).

We have five sailing courses available, Basic Keelboat (ASA 101), Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103), Docking Endorsement (ASA 118), Spinnaker Class and Bareboat Chartering (ASA 104).  You can register for the Basic Keelboat and Basic Coastal cruising courses together for additional savings.

Here is a brief summary of these courses:
