Are you interested in learning how to sail and getting the basic certifications needed to cruise on your own terms by renting a sailing boat?

I own a private 44\\\' sail boat and have hired an American Sailing Association (ASA) certified instructor to train up a few of my friends before a summer of coastal cruising. In order to reduce the costs of the training we are looking for two additional people to join my 3 friends in the training (they are harmless and on occasion charming). The courses that will be completed are ASA 101 Basic Keelboat Sailing, 103 Basic Coastal Cruising, and 104 Bareboat Chartering. More information on the courses can be found at . Completion of these courses will earn you the certifications necessary to rent and pilot sailboats of similar size or smaller throughout the US and anywhere internationally that ASA certification is recognized.

The training has been commissioned for April 30th thru May 6th from Folly Beach, SC. An ASA instructor with 35 years of experience will be instructing the course. Courses 101 and 103 will be completed in 4 days. Course 104 will be completed in 3 days with an overnight staying on the boat on the 6th night (there are 3 cabins to accommodate everyone). The total cost of the training with certifications is $1250 if there are 4 students onboard and $1090 for 5 students onboard. Specifically the costs of the training breaks down like this $450/day for the instructor and $500/day for the 6th day when the instructor will be onboard overnight. So the charge to have the captain on board for 7 days is $3200. In addition, there are 3 certifications at $150/person per certification for a total of $450.

This is the cheapest opportunity to get certified. To take the classes through the ASA on their boats you are looking at $2450/student before tax. So the certifications will be about half the regular cost.

If you are interested please contact me as soon as possible at the number below. There are books that accompany the training which will need to be shipped and studied in advance of the training.
