Product Description

Sailing Made Easy is a highly visual, easy-to-read teaching tool for would-be sailors with little or no prior exposure to the sport. Sailing Made Easy is the new official textbook for the ASA’s Basic Keelboat Sailing Standard course, ASA 101.

Setting a new standard for sailing education materials, Sailing Made Easy was written by a team of expert sailing instructors with more than 150 years of combined sailing experience. It was co-edited by Peter Isler, world famous America’s Cup winning navigator and commentator, and Jeremy McGreary, a 30-year veteran sailing writer and editor. The text closely mirrors the customary sequence in which beginning students are introduced to the theory of sailing, the boat in which they will learn, and the skills they will acquire.

“With its high-quality, detailed illustrations and easy-to-understand sailing lexicon, we expect Sailing Made Easy to help more people discover the joys of sailing,” said Charlie Nobles, executive director of the ASA. “As the leading authority on U.S. sailing instruction, we believe that this is the source book for anyone who is serious about this exciting sport and lifestyle.”

Comments about Sailing Made Easy:

I thought the title "Sailing Made Easy" was going to be one of those "quick reference guides" that would show a few trick to get you started. Wrong! This text book is laid out in a fashion that helps you learn as you progress through each chapter and build your knowledge. I highly recommend this book to ANYONE wanting to learn to sail. Thank you ASA.


Great book.

Comments about Sailing Made Easy:

ASA provides a wealth of information in this book for those of us learning to sail. The information is laid out in a easy to understand format. Starting in chapter one, you begin to build your knowledge and it continues to build through the entire book. I plan on reading it several times and will keep it as a reference. Can't wait to start the ASA 103.
