The Annapolis Naval Sailing Association has been training sailors for almost 40 years. Several of our instructors have helped train Naval Academy midshipmen in their sailing program. We are proud to now offer ASA certifications. We believe in maximizing time on the water and emphasize safety in our programs. We are located near Annapolis on the South River.
