Learn To Sail Vacations with Nautilus Sailing & Dream Yacht Charter

By: Charter, Destinations

A sailing vacation can be looked upon as a bucket list adventure or a once in a lifetime experience.  ASA is the world’s largest sailing education association and was in part conceived to educate and prepare sailors to skipper a bareboat safely and confidently.  Since its inception in 1983, ASA has taught almost 550,000 people how to sail and has issued over one million certifications for various higher levels of sailing proficiency.  ASA’s goal has always been to get more people out on the water. 

The American Sailing Association is very proud that Dream Yacht Charters, the world’s largest charter company, has chosen ASA affiliate, Nautilus Sailing, as its official sailing school partner, allowing sailors to obtain their ASA sailing certifications in over 60 exotic destinations.  

Dream Yacht Charter and Nautilus Sailing

Dream Yacht Charter has partnered with ASA School Nautilus Sailing to offer “Learn To Sail” vacations in each of their 64+ worldwide locations. Tim Geisler, lead Instructor of Nautilus Sailing, says: “We are incredibly excited to be named Dream Yacht Charter’s official American Sailing Association school. In the last 5 years, we have worked together to offer award-winning, live-aboard sailing courses with their fleet in the Grenadines, Palma, Mexico, and Tahiti. This new partnership has a huge amount of potential as we pave the way for many to embark on their sailing adventures.”

This is a luxury package where every aspect of the charter and instruction is taken care of by Nautilus Sailing and Dream Yacht Charters. Customers will be off on a “Learn To Sail Vacation” at the destination of their choice. All the while, they are earning their ASA certifications and getting valuable experience that will allow them to soon be on a bareboat charter anywhere they choose.
