We teach the ASA curriculum as it was designed to be taught. Our program incorporates FREE practice time and charter privileges with your tuition. Bluewater Sailing’s program is different. We don’t rush you through the classes, because extra sailing time makes you a safer sailor.
Call to learn more about all the opportunities our program offers: free sailing time, a large fleet dedicated to our students, advanced classes, special one-day workshops, private sessions and much more.
The class is just the beginning. Bluewater Sailing’s ASA 101 class is the longest class offered, has a only 3-4 students per instructor and gets you sailing safely. Once you’re feeling safe, you’ll be sharing the fun with friends and family.
