7 Days. ASA Certification. Full Immersion!


Joining us for a 7 Day ASA Certification course allows you to fully immerse yourself in the sailing lifestyle while learning new skills and exploring new anchorages and locations.

US Virgin Islands or British Virgin Islands, your choice.

We have US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands weeks available. No passport necessary for USVI weeks! For weeks where we cross into the British Virgin Islands a passport is required and there will be a surcharge of $150 per student to cover BVI customs and immigration fees. Everyone loves a new stamp in their passport!

A Relaxed Format for Increased Fun 

A 7 Day, single course format allows us to take our time and savor the stunning attractions of the Virgin Islands. We will be visiting incredible snorkeling locations including coral reefs and sunken wrecks during each and every course. Ask us about adding a SCUBA excursion to your trip as well! We will have plenty of time to relax on gorgeous white sand beaches whether it be the miles long beach at Magen's bay or the only accessible by water, Sandy Spit off of Jost Van Dyke.

Advanced Courses Available

Join us for the ASA 104 Bareboat Cruising certification course and learn the skills necessary to skipper your own multi-day bareboat charter while soaking up the years of local knowledge and tricks from our qualified instructors. 


Take your sailing to the next level on our ASA 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising Course, the most advanced ASA certification we offer at First Reef Sailing. This course includes heavy weather sailing techniques, advanced weather forecasting, navigation and much more. Most excitingly, ASA 106 includes an overnight passage of at least 12 hours or more. Witness incredible views of the milky way as we sail through a warm Caribbean night!
