association worldwide for adult instruction on larger sailboats of the
cruising keelboat variety and the Palm Beach Sailing Club is a
ASA Professional Certification Facility. We are proud to offer
ASA 101 Basic Keelboat Certification and ASA 103 Basic Coastal
Whether new to sailing or an experienced sailor, these quality
certification courses will provide you with the knowledge and
skills to start off on the right foot or improve your sailing abilities.
Courses are scheduled on a continuous basis and private scheduling
is also available. For your convenience, tailored 3 hour private lessons
can be arranged for those wishing to get their feet wet or too improve
a specific sailing skill.
These certifications and lessons are taught aboard a 28' sailboat.
Small Boat Lessons
US SAILING is the primary source of small boat sailing instruction in the United States. Palm Beach Sailing Club is proud to provide a variety of adult small sailboat courses. These courses are taught aboard a 19' day sailing type sailboat. Our Crew Course is for those new to sailing, those who have been out with friends but want to learn more, and those who have been away from the sport and desire to make a successful return. Next step, our Skipper Course is for those wishing to take command of a small sailboat, with others as crew. As always, these courses are regularly scheduled and tailored private lessons can be arranged. We also provide capsize recovery clinics throughout the year for those wishing to acquire US Sailing's "Little Red Book" Small Boat Sailor Certification.
