We are taking the ASA 101 Basic Keelboat and ASA 103 Coastal Navigation courses. They sent us our books and study materials 3 months in advance, and we were told that our 4 days on the water would be designed around our various experience levels. So far the study materials have been a review of material I already learned by reading many sailing books over the past year, but it is all fairly new to my wife. I'm sure we will both learn a lot regardless. Will we be experts? No, but it will hopefully lay a good foundation to learn more in the future, and if it can help my wife relax and enjoy sailing more it will be worth it.
