Re: ASA vs. US Sailing
I teach at an ASA school. We would find that unacceptable. The only keelboat course you teach with on a tiller and outboard engine is ASA 101.
We teach ASA 101 on the new ASA 22;
We teach 103/104/106 on a Beneteau 40
Seems like the school is ripping of their students.
QUOTE=pdxskipper;3496122]I have a question for you.
I started reading the ASA 103 textbook as I start my BCC class in a couple of weeks. The book course is based on a typical 33' cruiser, but my school will be using the same 25' Merit's with an outboard, that I sailed in my basic keel class. Even though they have 5 Catalina 27's in their club that seem more suited to the study material.
So how common is this? I know 25' is the minimum ASA standard for a BCC class, but after searching a few schools online, it seems many (or most?) use larger boats with inboard diesels or do I have the wrong impression?[/QUOTE]
There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
