Namely ASA 101, 103, 104, 105, and 106. In addition to the opportunity to achieve the highest level of sailing endorsement offered by the American Sailing Association; eligible candidates will learn how to navigate at sea without the aid of modern electronics with an introduction to Celestial Navigation (ASA 117).
