ASA vs. US Sail
US Sailing is racing oriented, and is the authority on racing in the U.S. ASA is more cruising oriented, and is perhaps more aligned with the larger charter companies. Both have similar school courses, and both will teach you how to sail. ASA (like US Sailing) has instructor training standards, specially developed course materials, etc.
Bottom line: go with the school you like best- right price, right place, right people.
