Member Testimonials

Testimonial-DWe saved for our vacation, but never dreamed we could save during our vacation. Our ASA membership paid for itself the first time we used it. We couldn’t believe how much we saved.
Testimonial-BWe chose the sailing lifestyle because it offers something for everyone. Our days and nights on the water give us a chance to spend quality time together away from our demanding daily lives. ASA membership plays a part in each and every sailing experience. We learn about fascinating new destinations and techniques from the books and magazines. Our sailing lesson and charter dollars go much further when we take advantage of our ASA discounts. Services such as towing and ASA discount travel give us the confidence and security we need to truly relax and enjoy sailing.
Testimonial-C“The kids are growing up in a world where seagulls and dolphins interest them as much as TV and video games. These years are so precious. We wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world!
Testimonial-AWe met in an ASA sailing class and decided we should help each other practice our new skills. Two years later were married and we still sail every chance we get.
Testimonial-EI joined the singles sailing group at my local ASA sailing club. After Basic Keelboat Sailing, Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Cruising classes, I ended up chartering in the British Virgin Islands. It was a tropical paradise.
