Basic Keelboat River Sailing Certification Course
An intensive course designed to produce confident skippers able to sail our 22’ keelboats in the Potomac River. This is a great class for those new to sailing, and it offers a perfect refresher for those who have experience sailing but may be out of practice. It is possible to earn both ASA 101 and 103 by taking this course but the certifications are not awarded automatically. Those without previous sailing experience and those that do not study the course materials may require additional training to successfully compete both ASA 101 and 103. We are committed to working with our members to achieve qualifications. Cost includes first year American Sailing Association (ASA) membership.
