September’s Photo of the Month

By: American Sailing Association, Members, Schools, Social Media

This month’s theme was “Lessons in Action.” We received all sorts of photos, from textbook man overboard drills to non-textbook lessons “from the school of hard knocks.” Greg Rogers of Leo Robbins Sailing Center in Ventura, CA, submitted one of the most important lessons of all in this great sequence–and the Facebook fans “liked” it best!

These two shots were the tied runners-up:

Loved seeing those ASA lessons in action! To browse the rest of the September competition’s photos, check out the Facebook album. Then “like” ASA, and start gathering your best shots for next month’s competition!
