American Sailing Association

Accreditation From The Best

Accreditation in sailing is important.  It demonstrates a level of expertise.  Through our relationships with the American Sailing Association (ASA), Sailing Virgins is set to offer both its syllabus and accreditation for our students.  Until accreditation is received in October 2016 our ASA instructors will teach under the banner of the awesome ASA School Virgin Islands Sailing School.

Sailing Virgins wants to bring cool back to sailing.  We get off on America's Cup cats cranking 45 knots in 18 knots of breeze.  When we're not sailing, we're kiteboarding or surfing or doing something else that's related to wind, water and good times.   And we want to bring this love of life, of water, of cool, to our students.

American Sailing Association (ASA)

The American Sailing Association is the largest association of its kind in the US.  With over 300 schools in the US and around the world, the ASA has trained hundreds of thousands of sailors.  The ASA sailing framework begins at 101, introducing the concepts of sailing, and carries right through to 108, giving sailors the confidence and skills to cross oceans navigating by the stars.

Like the other major sail training organisations, the ASA has very well evolved, comprehensive paths and are recognised around the world.  Whether you are wanting to charter a yacht in the BVI, head to Greece or start work as a mate on a superyacht in Antigua, sailors sporting logbooks and accreditation from ASA will get recognised.

We are stoked to be able to work with this highly regarded organisation.  Click on the logo below to be taken to their website.
