Taking time to sail is difficult in these times of work and family commitments. The ASA Sailing School has designed these sailing courses to give you the maximum from the days you may have available. Each course will include an ASA sailing school theory exam, as well as one or more ASA sailing school practical sailing exams. The training materials books etc are of the quality you would expect from a leader in sailing education. The school is based on Poros Island during the summer months, it’s here where we teach students how to sail.
