Re: US Sailing vs. ASA courses, vs. just get out there
I'm thinking that these local basic courses, plus some local cruiser and racer crewing, should be enough to prepare me comfortably for local day-sailing.
more than enough to get you safe, capable, and sailing....save your money and get out with the local guys. IF needed, later you can fill in the gaps with an instructor of your choosing.
My wife and I have both done ASA 103/10X and were not impressed.
