The ASA log book recommends that each ASA level be augmented with 25-30 hours of practice but many students do not have access to a sailboat to practice on. Delmarva Sailing School has solved this problem by creation of the Delmarva Sailing School Practice Sailing Program.
Once you get ASA certified for a sailing class at Delmarva Sailing School you can retake the same class for 50% of the list price for the same class. You do not have to take the written test so it is all fun and great practice.
This is of interest to students who want more helm time before taking the next class, before chartering, or before purchasing their own sailboat. If it has been a while since you took your last class, or if you simply feel you need more practice before progressing to the next level, the Practice Sailing Program may be what you need to turn you into a confident sailor.
The Practice Sailing Program is subject to availability. We used to require that students wait until one week prior to the class start date to sign up but now we have eliminated this requirement and students can sign up in advance. You can participate in the Practice Sailing Program on any date shown on the Practice Sailing Program schedule unless it is already full.
This unique program is reason enough by itself for any serious student to choose Delmarva Sailing School for their sailing education.
Students from other ASA Affiliated Sailing Schools are welcome to participate in the Delmarva Sailing School Practice Sailing Program.
Just contact Captainmike@delmarvasailingschool.com to see if the class date you want is available and then sign up for the Delmarva Sailing School Practice Sailing Program.
