Sailing Classes

One of the things Dave and I are doing is taking 3 sailing classes this year. The first one will be four nights in late May and early June Basic Keelboat Sailing Standard (ASA 101) on Lake Minnetonka. The 2nd is Basic Coastal Cruising Standard (ASA 103) and that one we will be taking on Dave's boat on Lake Pepin  in Mid June, so the boat needs to be ready to sail before that. The  last one is Bareboat Chartering Standard (ASA 104). We will be taking that one in mid July out of Bayfield, WI. We board the boat on a Fri night and then will be on Lake Superior in the Great lakes until Sunday night.

Over the past few months I have gotten every sailing video the Netflix has and watch all of them. I also have been doing on line classes though  and have completed  all but one of for the classes for Bareboat Charter Master and have completed all for the Skipper Rank. I still need to log sailing days for both.
