ASA Sailing Courses – Blue Water Sailing School

Blue Water Sailing School Courses

Blue Water students study together around a table

Blue Water Sailing School follows internationally accepted standards of the American Sailing Association (ASA). We offer basic, intermediate and advanced courses in sailing and navigation. Our week-long, live-aboard cruising course format provides the most immersive environment possible and a more thorough experience than being on the boat just a few hours a day. Sure, we have textbooks and required reading, but that’s to prepare you for “hands on” instruction and practice.

We not only teach sailing techniques, we prepare you for a sailor’s way of life.
