Basic Keelboat & Basic Coastal Cruising Theory Classes

All of the Victoria Sailing School's courses are a combination of theory (taught at the Colorado Executive Club Building) and practical (taught at either Chatfield Reservoir, Cherry Creek Reservoir or Lake Carter) sessions .

Theory classes run from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on the dates indicated on the theory schedule shown below. Course outlines and all lecture notes are supplied by the school, but you should bring pencil and notebook to class. Students taking the ASA101 (Basic Keelboat Sailing) will attend the First Theory and the Know Your Knots sessions shown on the following schedules. Students taking the ASA103 (Basic Coastal Cruising) will attend all four of the theory sessions shown on the scheduler. Note: Theory # 1 for the Basic Keelboat and the Theory # 1 for the Basic Coastal Cruising course are the same theory. Theory sessions do not need to be taken in order, but it is better to take the first theory prior to any of the other theory or practical sessions. Practical sessions can start immediately after taking the first theory session.
 
Scheduling Practical (on the water) Classes:  After you have registered for a class, you will get an automated email containing your userid and password for our online reservation system.  You can schedule the "on the water" sessions to fit your schedule.  We sail 7 days a week, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and (in the summer) 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Please note:  We need at least 2 students per practical session to be able to run a class.

Victoria Sailing School's ASA103 (Basic Coastal Cruising) course meets the requirements for most bareboat chartering companies operating in the U.S.  If you are chartering in Europe, you will probably need the ASA104 (Bareboat Chartering) certification.

Writing Exams:  Any of the nights that we are holding a regular 'First Theory' or a 'Know Your Knots' class, you can come a write exams.  Please arrive prior to 6:45 so that we can set you up without bothering a class in session.
