The American Sailing Association is devoted to teaching sailing lessons through a variety of means and methods. Although personal instruction is far and away the most effective, we’re mindful of getting that information across in other ways. For this reason we have created the Docking Made Easy video series that illustrates through live action, narration and animation how to dock a sailboat under sail and a under power. The series is full of helpful tips and tricks to overcome the intimidation and/or anxiety that sometimes comes along with docking a boat.

The series is written and narrated by two-time America’s Cup winner Peter Isler who maps out the safe and correct methods of handling a sailboat both under sail or under power.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I had spent some time away from sailing and the Docking Made Easy online course helped me feel more confident before the season started. I’d recommend every sailor take this course if they are feeling like they could use help becoming better at docking."
