Cave Run Sailing School - American Sailing Association Certifications
Cave Run Sailing School is an American Sailing Association Certified Sailing School dedicated to providing members of Cave Run Sailing Association with quality sailing instruction for Basic and Advanced Sailing Certification. We are the first all-volunteer, non-profit sailing school to be certified by the American Sailing Association. 

Our eight Cave Run Sailing School Instructor Faculty has over 105 cumulative ASA Certifications, hundreds of hours of instruction, and thousands of hours of "tiller time". Each student is paired up with an Instructor who then coordinates the Certification a personal instruction opportunity. Instructors are current members of Cave Run Sailing Association. 

All Cave Run Sailing School students must be current CRSA members.  Textbooks and course materials are provided to the student for self-study prior to scheduled classes and on-the-water practicals. Students are expected to have completed all assigned academic study, be prepared for instruction, and arrive on time for scheduled Certifications.  

Cave Run Sailing School provides ASA Student Certifications (100 series) and ASA Instructor Certifications (200 series) on an individual or small group instruction basis. Certifications are conducted on Cave Run Lake, Kentucky Lake, in local classroom facilities, or on Instruction cruises. On-the-water instruction is conducted aboard Instructors' private vessels or chartered vessels. Certifications are offered based upon member interest and schedule coordination, as agreed to, between students and Instructors.
