Re: ASA101

The best way to gain proficiency is to join a sailing club.

Re: ASA101

Another good way to get out on the water is to crew on a race boat. Find out when the local beer can races are held, show up looking like you are ready to go sailing (gloves, shoes, light jacket) and a six pack of good beer to share. Boats almost always need crew and it will get you out on the water on a regular basis.

When you are ready for your next sailing class, check out LTD Sailing!

Have fun!

Re: ASA101

What about the club where you obtained your 101, or was that a school only?

As others have already told you, a sailing club or crewing on races is the best way. I'm on the other coast so not much help I'm afraid.

Good luck!

Re: ASA101

There are (at least) two different kinds of clubs:
-yacht clubs, which are primarily geared toward owners. It sounds like this is the kind of club you have contacted.
-sailing clubs, which are primarily geared toward day charters. These often have a service for members to get together and share a day charter.
