American Sailing Association membership is about the future of sailing, the environment and you!

ASA membership supports you and the greater sailing community

Educational Programs

At ASA, our educational programs are battle tested and proven to produce highly competent sailors. ASA schools are hand-picked and counseled to keep the facility qualities high and the instructor qualifications are rigid and demanding to insure excellent educational results.

Boating Legislation

The ASA interacts with the U.S. Coast Guard and works with other major stakeholders to positively affect boating legislation and safety education throughout the country.


ASA is passionate about keeping our oceans and waterways clean. Part of your membership goes towards organizations that are committed to our common cause – the elimination of toxic plastics and other harmful pollutants that destroy our environment.

We can make a difference if we all band together!

  • We 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.

  • ASA membership plays a part in each and every sailing experience. We learn about fascinating new destinations and techniques from the books and magazines.
