The American Sailing Association was founded in 1983 with a mission to teach people to sail safely and confidently. To achieve that goal, the ASA established the U.S.'s first unified standards for measuring a sailor’s level of knowledge and skill in keelboats. With over 300 affiliated sailing schools throughout the U.S., Europe, Japan, Central America, Taiwan, China, and other far eastern countries, ASA schools have certified in excess of half a million sailors world wide.
The ASA's national standards for sailing education has provided sailors with the proper training and respect for their responsibilities as boaters, thereby ensuring fun, safe, smart sailing for everybody. Learn More
