ASA 103 Certification and Captain Chris were incredible. I was really able to put all of the knowledge from 101 into practice plus make it all work on a larger boat. By the end of the day on Sunday we were rocking the bay and our complete crew felt confident to sail. Can't wait to charter our next boat from SCCA. I'll be back for 104 and more.

The boat we were provided with was too heavy to complete all the exercises required by the curriculum. Pretty frustrating.

We had a wonderful experience with South Coast Sailing. We loved our instructor Craig. He was thorough, patient and a fabulous teacher.

I started the course with only ASA 101 and some knowledge of a small tiller-based cabin-less keel boat. I left the weekend feeling familiar enough with a 35 ft boat with living quarters to easily be a member of a crew or captain if I had to. Our instructor was top notch. Murat has been sailing his whole life and was very comfortable operating the boat and teaching others. Not only did we learn all the skills to pass the ASA 103 exam, we had a pleasant weekend sailing.

South Coast Sailing always does a fantastic job of training, no matter if it's basic sailing or the more advanced courses!
