Re: US Sailing vs. ASA courses, vs. just get out there

Having a recognized certification from either ASA or USSA could help if you want to bareboat charter or possibly with one's insurance. That said, I fully agree that the actual value of the training is entirely dependent on the instructor themselves, local or national.

I seem to recall that when my wife took lessons, she had a choice of which cert she wanted. The only difference was which written test she needed to take, so they could send in the right paperwork.
