Is our school suitable for you?
All schools are different, and offer different teaching syllabuses. Schools also stream their students to different levels. For example the ASA is concerned with teaching safe recreational yachting. Their licenses are not designed for commercial use. Unlike the British equivalent the RYA that trains it’s students to a commercial level. Their courses are therefore much more detailed and harder to pass.
You will find ASA and other schools all over the world. Personal taste is an important factor is selecting an appropriate sailing area, but any future plans are also important.
What skills do you need to learn?
How much of a challenge do you want to face?
Some sailing areas will be better than others for obtaining experience in dealing with busy ports, others may have exceptional tidal ranges, or notoriously rocky shores.
All these are important factors to consider when thinking about a sailing school.
If you intend to sail in a particular area you may want to learn there so that you are taught relevant skills.
Remember that the conditions vary according to the season of the year.
