ASA vs. US Sailing
Ahoy, cfreund. Both are good and are generally accepted. US Sailing probably carries a little more weight and prestige as they are the governing body of sailing in the U.S. Check their web site and you''ll see what I mean. I have US Sailing certifications and I''ve been happy with them and with US Sailing. If you go to Steve Colgate''s Offshore Sailing School in Tampa or Captiva Island, you will get your certifications through US Sailing.
