Sailing Courses

The Harbor 20 Sailing Club offers two sailing courses. We offer an Introduction to Sailing and the Basic Keelboat Certification on the Harbor 20. We are affiliated with the American Sailing Association (ASA) and the Newport Beach Sailing School.

The American Sailing Association is the leading authority on sailing instruction in the United States. More than a half a million students have been certified through ASA. ASA certifications are recognized worldwide. With your ASA certification, you will be able to charter boats in sailing destinations across the globe. The Newport Beach Sailing School is an affiliate of ASA and provides the best value in sailing instruction with award winning instructors, flexible schedules and clean, well maintained boats.

The Harbor 20 Sailing Club provides excellent ASA Sailing instructors who are also highly qualified US Coast Guard License Captains. Our instructors are great sailors and racers, but more importantly, they really know how to teach. They know how to communicate in a way that makes learning enjoyable and fun. Our captains are patient and friendly, and you will come away with the competence and confidence to sail.
