Practice Sail Programs
After you complete ASA101 and/or ASA103, ASA 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. If you want more helm time before taking the next class, before chartering, before purchasing your own sailboat, or if it has been a while since you took your last class, one of our two Practice Sailing Programs described below may be what you need to turn you into a confident sailor. With either Practice Sail Program, you do not have to take the written test so it is all fun and great practice.
In addition to our own alumni, students from other ASA affiliated sailing schools are welcome to participate in Nockamixon Sailing School Practice Sail Programs. We allow this because we feel confident that once they experience the quality of our classes, they will not want to go anywhere else.
These two unique Practice Sail Programs are reason enough by itself for any serious student to choose Nockamixon Sailing School for their sailing education.
Nockamixon Sailing School Practice Sailing Programs:
Private Practice Sail Program:
If you would prefer to not retake ASA101 or ASA103 with first time students, and just want sail time with an instructor on board who simply monitors what you are doing and offers advise when needed, our Private Practice Sail Program may be what you are looking for to gain more practice on the water sailing. Price is $769 for a full day of sailing with a competent sailing instructor and USCG Captain. 1-4 students allowed for the same price. One full day minimum from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. If you are a group of 1-4 sailors who want to sign up for a Private Practice Sail Program day, please contact Captainmike@nockamixonsailingschool.com to pick out a date for a Private Practice Sail. Private Practice Sail Program Classes available weekdays only.
Group Practice Sail Program:
Once you get ASA certified for a ASA101 or ASA103 from any ASA Affiliated Sailing School, you can retake the same class for 50% off the Nockamixon Sailing School list price for the same class.
