Manhattan Sailing School offers American Sailing Association (“ASA”) certification with most courses. We encourage you to become ASA certified! When you register for Basic Sailing, check the ASA certification box. The certification is $50 in advance. If you wait until your course, the cost is $75. Save $25 by registering for ASA certification in advance.
To qualify for ASA certification, you will demonstrate the required on-water skills to your instructor during the course. Then you will take a multiple choice test on theoretical knowledge. If you pass your test (and we will keep teaching you until you do!), ASA issues you a certification seal for your sailing logbook. If you do not pass during your first attempt, we allow you to retake the test at no additional charge.
