Q&A

How does scheduling work?
We regularly post new course dates. We are flexible when scheduling courses and will create a program that adapts to your days off and general availability.

Do I receive sleep aboard accommodations?
Students in our 103, 104, and 106 courses can sleep on the class boat the first night at no extra cost. 101 students cannot sleep aboard.

Can I do multiple certification courses on consecutive days?
We do not schedule multiple certification courses on consecutive days. The American Sailing Association recommends extensive practice time between
levels to become a competent sailor. Free practice time is included with all of our packages to encourage students to practice before advancing to the next level.

How much studying is involved?
We recommend reading your textbook in its entirety before the first day of class and memorizing key concepts, terms, and diagrams.

Can I bring someone along that does not want to achieve certification?
Yes, but the individual would still need to pay for the full cost of the course since they would be filling a spot. However, additional fees including textbook costs and the certification fee may be waived if the individual does not wish to obtain the credential.

How does parking work?
If you park in the Santa Barbara Harbor, the cost is $15 per 24 hour period. You need to keep your parking ticket and pay upon exiting. The lot is a Santa Barbara City Lot.

What is an average gratuity to give?
Gratuities should be based on your overall experience with each instructor at a particular certification level. You can give cash directly to your instructor or put the gratuity on a credit card with our front desk receptionist in the office.

What is your cancellation policy?
We have a strict non-refundable policy. However, in the case of an emergency, there may be an option to reschedule. The on-site manger determines this based on how much lead time was given and the nature of the emergency.

What happens in inclement weather?
For ASA 101, we will usually reschedule to another date. For other ASA levels, inclement weather provides a great opportunity to further your sailing skills.

If we sign up for a group option, how many frequent sailing hours, day sails on the 28’, and club membership initiations do we receive?
Although you will each receive your own set of study materials, you will only receive one frequent sailing hours package, one day sail on the 28’, and one club membership initiation fee.

What happens if I sign up for a particular package now but want to upgrade to another package later?
You are allowed one package upgrade. If you wish to advance further in the program than your package allows, you may purchase additional courses with your club member discount.

When do I begin paying dues for my club membership?
Your first month’s dues of $50.00 will be charged on your last day of ASA 101. If your graduation date falls after the 15th of the month, your dues will begin on the first day of the following month, but your membership will be activated immediately.

When can I use my free day sail on the Catalina 28’?
Your free day sail on the 28′ can be used Monday-Friday from Memorial Day – Labor Day and on any day of the week the rest of the year. It cannot be used on July 4th.
