Prerequisites for ASA 105 Coastal Navigator:
None: you don’t even have to be a sailor!
The successful student will be able to safely navigate a sailing vessel in coastal or inland waters without the aid of GPS, radar or anything else that requires electricity.
You’ll learn chart interpretation, be able to chart a course, find a position, take visual fixes, anticipate tidal fluctuation, understand ocean currents and plan extensive cruises. These skills are prerequisites for ASA 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising, where you will learn to use radar, GPS, chartplotter, SPOT and other electronic aids.
It only makes sense to provide this instruction in a group or online. To that end, we have partnered with ASA and STARPATH.
Several of my students have done the STARPATH ASA 105 and report that it was most excellent instruction. And I’ll be standing by to answer any questions you might have along the way.
