Thumbs up ASA 101. Hell yes.

The Wife and I just finished our weekend long ASA 101 course.
Instruction plus we spent almost 14 hours on the water under sail.
We joined the Harbor Sailboats club in San Diego and are headed out this weekend with the kids on our maiden voyage ( cal 22) I have been around the ocean and power boats my whole life, but learning to sail was new to me.
Old salts, drop the ego, if you never sailed. Take the course. The life you save may be mine. I'm so glad I did. Moving on to the 103 course so I can take out there larger sail boats after I log a few trips with the cal 22. Were hooked. Wife checking sail trim.

I am wondering why she was not at the helm. . Lot of schools prohibit couples attending the same class together because when the manhood take over and the SO learn less.

Oh yeah, ASA 101 class is good. You can ask lot of dumb questions without accusing be real dumb

Thanks for the kind words guys. San Diego harbor is a really cool place to sail. Lots of history, scenic city skyline and we have a lot of military in the area. We sailed buy the nuke sub station and they had one in dry dock. Behind a curtain of course, but you could still see subs dia, mind blowing. Must have been as tall as a 3 story building.

Very cool. Welcome to the asylum.... Sounds like you are on a similar path I started last year. Careful though, next thing you are going to be doing is looking at all kinds of boats online and doing spreadsheets on equipment for them and gear for yourself and all other such things.... Ignore the pricing though, that gets scarey!

Again, welcome to Sailnet and this wonderful thing called sailing....

Do you mean the Harbor Island Yacht Club? If so my wife and I took the ASA101 course from the other facility in Long Beach a couple of years ago. We just took the Coastal Cruising class at the beginning of June. We did the three day option. First day on the water in LB, then sail to Catalina on the second day. The instructor leaves you on the mooring ball there and you bring the boat back on the third day. We had a great time!

I've been pretty pleased with Harbor Yacht Club.
