Adult Keelboat Certification

ASA-101 is a beginner course for adult sailors with no previous experience, taught by certified American Sailing Association instructors, all whom have at least 10 years’ experience sailing. The boats used for ASA-101 are weighted-keel sloop-rigged sailboats, at 22 feet in length. After your ASA-101 certification, you’ll know what all of that means. For now, just know that they are very stable and safe and perfect for someone with no experience. This is the best course for any adult interested in sailing. By the end of the course you’ll be able to comfortably sail your own vessel up to 27′ in length, or serve as crew on a sailing vessel.

Each class meets for four sessions of three hours each. Each class is three students, led by an onboard instructor. After you register, you’ll be mailed your included copy of ASA’s new text Sailing Made Easy. On your first day you’ll also receive an ASA Official Logbook, a Rules of the Road hand-out, as well as USCG Federal Requirements. ASA-101 Certification is available to members of the ASA who successfully complete the course. If you’re not yet a member, you can join the ASA at the completion of the course as well.

For those who have previous experience sailing and would like to test-out for a certification, you may take the ASA-101 Basic Keelboat Challenge. Demonstrate your basic skills on the boat, and the pass the written exam to receive your ASA-101 Certification.

Cost: $454 for individuals, $874 for a pair, or $1293 for three people.
ASA Membership is $39 at completion of the course if you wish to be ASA Certified.

There is a weight limit of 250lbs per person for this class.  We may be able to make accommodations for others by reaching out to us on the Contact Page.  Our goal is to add an adaptive sailing program so everyone can enjoy the sport of sailing.

Wednesday Night Racing

Test your sailing skills every Wednesday this summer! SCSS will host and provide boats for an evening small boat racing series. This series is open to any sailor who has taken past classes at SCSS or can pass a basic sailing skills test.  This race series is all about improving your sailing skills in a fun, low pressure, casual race environment.

Never raced before? Don’t let that hold you back. Our instructors will go over the basic rules of the road and starting sequence.

Adults and youths are welcome to attend.  This is also a great way for parents to sail with their kids!

Wednesday night racing is for sailors of all ages who have some experience sailing. If you are unsure if you qualify, click here to contact us.

All sailors under 18 years of age must have a parent/guardian present (either on the sailboat, as a volunteer on a coach boat, or on shore).
