Why the American Sailing Association?
Apart from being the oldest sailing association in the United States, the American Sailing Association sets itself apart from the rest by promoting best practices, superior curriculum and a universal passion for sailing. Seattle Sailing Club is a proud member of ASA.
I started as a complete beginner and through the Seattle Sailing club was able to become a proficient sailer. The experience unlocked a part of Washington I’d never experienced before and introduced me to a community that I truly value.Will
