2019 Basic Keelboat information

ASA 101 will be offered on a demand basis for 2019.  Most of our customers have some boating or sailing experience and aren't interested in taking the 101 course on smaller boats.  For this reason, we will be offering the course aboard our larger boat which is docked in the Ludington Munipal Marina.    

Minimum class size

Our minimum class size is three students.  This is necessary because everyone learns the responsibilities of the captain and crew.  The various sailing maneuvers involve the captain and the crew.
