ASA 101 Basic Keelboat Sailing Class Outline
A typical Basic Keelboat Sailing Class:
Learn to Sail Texas will send all of your class materials when you register. Try to read the entire book Sailing Made Easy prior to class plus fill out the forms and bring them to class.
Make the most of sailing course, read the lessons and do your home work.

Day One
We try to limit the time spent in the classroom, your here to be sailors! Class is conducted from 9 - 5, (0900 to 1700), each day. First, a classroom session each day. The classroom is located at: 505 S. Water Street Suite 535 Corpus Christi, TX 78401. The classroom sessions usually lasts about 2 hours, followed by an hour lunch break. We then meet aboard our training vessel, (Training Won), and we set sail for the rest of the afternoon. We return from Corpus Christi Bay, put the boat up and head back to the classroom around 4:00 and take the first part of the ASA 101 written test.

Day Two
The second day is similar, a 2 hour classroom session, an afternoon on the water practising; points of sail, tacks, jibes, and Crew Overboard Recoveries, then back to the classroom to complete and grade the written test.

Over this two day period you will learn, understand and practise the following:

Yes it seems like a lot of material and, yes there is more, a lot more! Reading the assignments and working the exercise at the end of the assigned chapters prior to the start of class will enhance and facilitate your learning experience on the water. This is the beginning of an experience and a quest for knowledge and skill that can last a lifetime. You might start racing or single hand a boat across the bay just to get away, perhaps take your family to a near-by port or cross an ocean. Its all possible. I've been sailing keelboats for nearly 20 years and and after tens of thousands of miles on the water, I am still learning. Come On, Join Us, Lets Learn to Sail Texas in Corpus Christi!
