PowerTime ASA Sailing Lessons

Since our inception ten years ago, PowerTime has been teaching people to learn to sail, utilizing the American Sailing Association curriculum of boating lessons. The ASA learning modules take someone who has never set foot on a powerboat before, all the way through advanced cruising and navigational skills. Like many things in life, boating is much more enjoyable when you get started right with professional boating lessons!


Year in and year out, our boating schools have been recognized as some of the best ASA training facilities in the country. This year is no different. Our Boston boating base received accolades for top boating school and top boating instructor in that region. Out on the West Coast, our San Francisco boating base did the same thing, garnering top school and top instructor in a region that has plenty of both! Only a few boating schools reach this pinnacle each year, so we are very proud of the effort put forth every year by our bases across the country.

Our learn to sail programs differ somewhat from what you will find at most boating schools. The priority here, is to create well educated, confident and prudent sailors who are capable of handling cruising powerboats in a variety of conditions. Many schools are only interested in getting you signed up and moving you through the process as quickly as possible. Ours is just the opposite. We want to spend as much time as it takes to get you and your crew feeling comfortable and proficient.

The best time of year to begin planning your boating lesson plan is right now. Before the season gets underway, contact your local PowerTime base to arrange a time to meet with the instructor and learn more about the program they offer. Signing up early means you get to choose your lesson times before they fill up. Many students can get started early in the Spring and “graduate” by mid-Summer, in time to enjoy the fruits of your education in our flat rate membership boating program.
