American Sailing Association St. Petersburg, FL – Courses and Boats

All of our  instruction is done aboard our boats. For the ASA 101 Class we are currently using our 30.6 foot Hunter sloop. This gives a nice, steady platform for learning how to sail. Inexperienced sailors enjoy this 30 ft. Hunter because it does not heel over as far as some smaller boats.

The ASA 103 class is given either on our Hunter 30.6 or one of our Hunter 36 sloops, based on availability. ASA 104, introduction to coastal cruising, is taught on our Hunter 36.

About the ASA

The American Sailing Association was founded in 1983 with a simply stated mission: to teach people how to sail safely and confidently. To achieve that goal, the ASA set out to establish standards against which to measure a sailor’s level of knowledge and skill.

Simple Sailing Charters is proud to be one of over 300 affiliated sailing schools. These schools are located throughout the United States and overseas around the world. So come join us at Simple Sailing and get a great sailing education with the American Sailing Association, St. Petersburg, FL.
