Re: Taking my ASA101 and 103 at once
Everyone- thank you for the replies! Definitely gets one thinking...
Still, regarding the 103 class, it seems a lot of the material is just an extension of the 101, just with a little more detail...
I'll be attending the Maryland School of Sailing & Seamanship. The 101 is taught as a full 4 day, then the 103 is a full 3 day (both are live-aboard). Class of 4 (or 5) taught on a 32ft packet boat, so definitely gives me a feel for the mid/larger boats, and small class size seems like a good fit.
I dunno... guess it seems like it'll be a lot of hand/mind coordination with some solid common sense. Understanding hydro/aerodynamics isn't too bad, and remembering which of the road rules applies will take some practice. Obviously there's an infinite amount to learn, based on difference scenarios, Wx, locations, etc., that makes each sailor's background unique.
Still, looking forward to it. Either way it's a starting point!!!
