Training with the ASA

With Royal Yachting Association Recognised Training Centre status the ASA’s centres can offer members training in almost everything sailing and powerboat related from the very basics to advanced and instructor level.  The ASA’s centres deliver both practical and shorebased courses in the disciplines to the RYA’s internationally recognised standards.  For inshore sailing courses at the AISTC holders of certain categories of membership can only train with the Thorney Island Sailing Club but may use the AISTC  equipment recreationally.  Please see the AISTC main page for more details.

The ASA is also affiliated to the British Kitesurfing Association (BKSA) for its delivery of Kitesurfing training.  With their affiliation to the ASA the Regimental and Corps Yacht Clubs and Sailing Associations also deliver training to their members.
