If you need a sample of what a resume should look like you would look no further than the background of Captain Lisa Batchelor Frailey. A few highlights includeretired Navy Captain, C-130 Aircraft Navigator, Oceanographer, Meteorologist, ASA Instructor and USCG Master since 2006. She is the founder of Sail Solomons and an ASA Oustanding Instructor. More importantly, she loves sharing her love of sailing with everyone. Perhaps the most important thing to know about Captain Lisa Batchelor Frailey is her belief that sailing is for everyone, “ Sailing knows no age, no race or religion, no wealth category. I’ve seen islanders sail (and race) on homemade boats with bamboo masts, and enjoy it just as much as (or maybe more than) their neighbors on a 50’ catamaran.”
ASA is encouraging women to get out on the water and, with that, we are highlighting the adventures of our women instructors as they lead expeditions around the world and spread the love and joy of sailing to as many people as possible. Captain Anne Alberg is currently sailing from Seattle to New Zealand aboard S/V Arctic Loon and we have profiled her journey in Women on the Water – The Journey of the Arctic Loon.
ASA asked Captain Anne Alberg of San Juan Sailing about sailing and her history with the lifestyle. She is this month’s Featured Instructor.

Captain Stacey is this month’s ASA Featured Instructor.
