Sailing Made Easy, Even Easier!

Many of you have now gotten your paws on our hot new edition of the 101 textbook, Sailing Made Easy. To supplement the text, ASA has produced a series of video shorts that clearly demonstrate key concepts from the book. New and seasoned sailors alike can learn a thing or two from these Sailing Made Easy video tips. From the proper way to raise the main to powering up with the slot effect advantage, even salty dogs will find some new nuggets of information in these succinct videos.

Below are the first handful of lessons–and more to come soon. You can catch them as they’re released on the Lats & Atts TV channel (on the Versus network) Wednesdays at 9:30am EST/6:30am PST, through Sept 22. They will live permanently on ASA’s YouTube Channel too.
