Level 3 Sailing Courses - BVI ASA 103/104 Learn to Bareboat

ASA 103

The next step after your Basic Keelboat experience.  
 
Transition from sailing a basic keelboat to our larger, heavier sail training & cruising yacht and instantly discover that some things have changed a bit… but also see where many things haven’t changed at all!  Reviewing all sailing physics, maneuvering and safety that we have established in our ASA 101 course, on a larger vessel we’ll increase our focus on ship’s systems, operating under auxiliary power, contingency/emergency planning, basic navigation & pilotage, and local weather/forecast interpretation.
 
This course really builds confidence!
