ASA Sailing made easy

Our latest title features in the American Sailing Association’s member’s magazine.

ASA Releases Completely new Basic Keelboat Book

Excerpt from the article in the Spring 2010 edition of American Sailing Journal

ASA debuted Sailing Made Easy, the completely new and updated version of its Basic Keelboat (ASA 101) text in mid February at the Miami International Boat Show. Sailing Made Easy, a 120-page, richly illustrated, full color textbook is the first of two books that will later replace ASA’s well-known Sailing Fundamentals book, which has been used as the text for both the Basic Keelboat and Basic Coastal Cruising (103) courses.

ASA Executive Director Charlie Nobles offered these comments about the new book.

“We actually started discussing the project back in 2006. The concept then was to do a thorough update of Sailing Fundamentals. After some discussion, we decided not only to replace Sailing Fundamentals with two separate books, but to strive for the highest possible quality and have ASA be the author and publisher of the books.”

So, we gathered a group of our most experienced instructors for the writing team, researched the book packager / illustrator team responsible for the highest quality sailing text any of us could find on the bookstore shelves and rounded up the best, most experienced sailing photographer, sailing experts and sailing editors. The result is impressive, and we think Sailing Made Easy will be the standard for excellence in sailing education for years to come!”
