Designed for sailors aiming to elevate their seamanship to the next level, this comprehensive program provides the knowledge, skills, and practical experience needed to navigate coastal waters safely and confidently.

The ASA 106 curriculum builds upon the foundation laid in earlier, ASA courses, such as ASA 101 (Basic Keelboat Sailing), ASA 103 (Basic Coastal Cruising), and ASA 104 (Bareboat Cruising) and ASA 105 (Coastal Navigation), all of which are prerequisites for the Advanced Coastal Cruising course.

As such, participants are expected to have a solid grasp of fundamental sailing principles, including sail trim, boat handling, navigation, and safety procedures.

This course serves as a bridge between recreational sailing and more advanced offshore adventures, preparing sailors for the challenges and responsibilities of coastal cruising and is led by experienced and certified ASA instructors. Participants delve into a range of topics essential for coastal cruising, such as:

1. Advanced Navigation Techniques: Master the art of coastal navigation using electronic and traditional methods, including chart plotting, GPS navigation, and piloting. Learn to interpret tide and current data, assess weather patterns, and plan routes effectively to navigate coastal waters with precision.

2. Passage Planning and Execution: Develop the skills to plan and execute coastal passages safely and efficiently. Explore strategies for route planning, waypoint selection, and watchkeeping, while honing your ability to adapt to changing conditions and unforeseen challenges.

3. Night-time Coastal Piloting and Navigation: Watch standing, course steering, navigation and emergency procedures (Crew Overboard) during an overnight passage.

4. Seamanship and Safety: Deepen your understanding of seamanship principles and safety protocols essential for coastal cruising. Explore topics such as anchoring techniques, collision avoidance, emergency procedures, and onboard safety equipment, ensuring you’re prepared to handle any situation that may arise at sea.
