Sailing Education

Free Sailing Classes

Every Spring we host a free introduction to sailing class.  It is typically in the mid-April to early May timeframe- see the events page with the details on the class for a given season.

ASA Classes

RYC now offers American Sailing Association (ASA) certification classes to its members! Our goal is to teach one four day session of ASA 101 each month, June through August. ASA 101 is an extensive and complete introductory course, with no educational prerequisite. Successful participants earn ASA Basic Keelboat Certification, an internationally recognized standard. For more about ASA 101 and more advanced ASA Courses go to the American Sailing Association website.

No classes are scheduled at this time. However, if you are interested in sailing classes, we'd still like to hear from you to provide information on other options and to be able to notify you when classes are offered again. 

The cost is $349 per person** and includes ASA Text, ASA Logbook, Four days of dry-land and on-the-water instruction by an ASA Certified Instructor, ASA 101 Exam & Certification and one year membership to ASA. Sessions require a minimum of two students and are limited to a maximum of four and they fill up fast!  The class requires an $85 deposit 21 days in advance, with the balance on or before the first day of class.
