Re: Starting ASA 101 Next Week

My overall experience was excellent. I had private instruction, 1-on-1, for ASA 101 for $395 from Beachside Sailing School.

Captain Bill was a great instructor.

I scored 97 out of 100 on the final (only because I was tricked by a two part question, so if you get the first part wrong, the second part is also wrong).

Before leaving, I decided to purchase Coastal Cruising Made Easy. I've already read 25 pages.

Get some sailing time in before your next course. After I got my first certification (CYA Basic and Coastal Navigation), I thought about getting the next course, my instructor said just go sailing. I sailed for 7 years before I got my next course.

Actually you might want do a coastal navigation course.

Congratulations! Of course, there will always be something new to learn -- sailing is so many different things.
