While I personally find membership in US Sailing to have little benefit, having a recognized training program does have benefits. Get a logbook with their first few courses passed and chartering a boat becomes fairly easy, even for those new to sailing. Just bringing a note from your local teacher may not carry the same influence.
So, how did you become so torqued over these agencies? Someone take your lunch money?
