Inside Sailing with Peter Isler

By: Elearn, Inside Sailing, Learn To Sail

The American Sailing Association has always worked to get more sailors out on the water in a safe and confident manner. An ASA sailing education builds upon your skills and culminates in your ability to take on a bareboat charter or a day sail with complete confidence that you can sail a boat and keep your vessel and crew safe. 

With the Inside Sailing series with Peter Isler, ASA is helping sailors build upon sailing certifications with the details that fill in the gaps in your sailing education with information about the sailing world that is not always covered in conventional instruction.

From charter information to weather to navigation in the smartphone era, Peter Isler’s Inside Sailing will explore sailing through interviews, on the water training and presentation style breakdowns.
