ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising
In order to take this course, you must have completed the ASA 101 course.
This American Sailing Association course is combined with the ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising Course that will prepare you for sailing on larger bodies of water and is the natural next step up from ASA 101. If you have plans on chartering in the Caribbean, this is a great place to build from. This course is taught as a combination of both courses, back-to-back.
In the ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising course, you'll learn to skipper in moderate winds and sea conditions, cruising sailboat terminology, basic boat systems, auxiliary engine operation, docking procedures, intermediate sail trim, navigation rules, basic coastal navigation, anchoring, weather, safety and seamanship.
After completing the ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising course, you'll be able to skipper a sloop-rigged auxiliary powered 25'-35' keelboat by day in moderate winds and sea conditions.
