ASA 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising.

Sign Up now for Classes in the Spring, Summer and Fall of 2017.

Prerequisites are ASA 101, 103, 104 and 105 required.

Half the folks that take this course are not interested in the certification...They just want to sailing with a captain and visit a number of wonderful anchorages at a reasonable price! This is a four and a half day trip on a larger (41') boat where we visit many different places of interest in the Chesapeake Bay. We will be stopping at various anchorages along the way, applying the advanced navigation techniques learned in ASA 105, and do an overnight sail with watch-keeping through the night. We will discuss advanced sail trim, weather, boat systems, and advanced navigation techniques.

Folks often take this course more than once as every one is different. As in any coastal cruising trip we plan our next day's journey factoring in the forecast wind and two trips are the same!
