Learning to sail has never been so much fun and at a very low cost. Come join us – we would love to share our experiance, joy and skills of sailing. Our fees include, membership and sail pass ,water and shore classes, book, mentoring, practice sails and access to boats.

Level 1 Maintenance Class is offered at Kent Lake on the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings, all summer, from 9 AM to 1 PM.

All members, including Students, are encouraged to be Dock Master, its a great learning experience. You can now ask to do this with a Mentor! And the hours count as part of your total required volunteer hours.

All club fees are here.
You can take this short boating safety Quiz .

* Metro Park entrance fees are the responsibility of the member.
* ASI does not offer refunds
* ASI is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization

Note Also
As a Student Sail Pass holder (unrated), you can take practice sails with our rated sailors (Mentors and/or Water Instructors) all you want, as often as you want. You can take the Level 1 tests when you feel ready. After qualifying, you can take the L1 boats out as the skipper as often as you like, consistent with some common-sense rules, of course. For example, ASI does not allow single-handed sailing. You’ll learn more about this in the classes. Unrated members have two years to get the Level 1 rating but getting the Level 1 rating can be easily accomplished after your classes in the same year. The program was designed that way. If for any reason you are unable to complete your rating in two years, just sign up for the class again. If you believe you have a situation that needs review, we offer a process for that thru our Operations Team, just let us know.
