The Deal

  • $199 for a one-day sailing certification course for one person ($395 value)

There’s an option to pay an additional $39 for an ASA certification and $25 for the accompanying book.

Marina Sailing preserves the art of sailboat operation through classes helmed by ASA-certified instructors. Basic sailing lessons set students afloat for two three-hour sessions. The first session revolves around water orientation and fundamental principles of sailing. Students learn the parts of the boat, how to turn away from and into the wind, and how to tie a variety of knots. The second session reviews lessons learned in the previous one in addition to sailing maneuvers such as single-handed tacking and jibbing, which keeps one hand free for yo-yoing.

Marina Sailing Channel Islands

Californians realize their nautical dreams at six harbors along the coast, thanks to the skilled guidance and boat rentals of Marina Sailing Channel Islands. The company's instructors—who are certified by the American Sailing Association and who are USCG licensed-captains—have been teaching people how to safely navigate Pacific waters since 1962. Whether looking to skipper a sloop-rigged keelboat, navigate the ocean by following celestial bodies and stalled spaceships, or just spend a few sunshine-filled hours on the water, fledgling sailors can find the proper training and equipment from Marina Sailing's crew. A fleet of more than 80 boats features convenient amenities such as marine barbecues, stereos, and hot showers.
