ASA and The Ocean Cleanup Embark on ‪#‎MegaExpedition‬.

This coming August the American Sailing Association will be providing exclusive documentary-style content from the infamous Pacific Garbage Patch off the islands of Hawaii. ASA certified instructor Bob Solliday will be in regular satellite communication with the ASA shore team as he participates in the Mega Expedition, a research component of The Ocean Cleanup project. As part of the fleet of boats that will be surveying the ocean, Solliday and his crew will be collecting samples that will aid in the research about the amount of harmful plastics that are in our oceans.

Duncan Hood is an ASA Instructor Evaluator and has played a key role at ASA since it was founded in 1983. His recent trips to China have helped start numerous sailing schools and put sailing on the map in the region.
In this entertaining podcast from 59º NORTH Duncan talks about his colorful sailing career and his trips to China. Definitely worth a listen. ‪#‎ASAInstructorLife‬ http://59-north.com/59northpodcast/2015/7/4/duncan-hood
Episode #110 is Duncan Hood, a long-time sailor and technically an Annapolis resident for more than two decades, but who’s traveled the world teaching instructors how to teach sailing. Duncan works ASA and years ago got asked to travel to China to help start a sailing school in the south, near the border with North Korea, and his story of that misadventure makes up a good chunk of the middle of this episode. It’s a riveting tale

Continuing our ‪#‎WhatsInARig‬ series we present the Ketch. Ketch rigs hold a special place in many a cruising sailor’s heart. There’s something dignified and majestic about them...
Ketch rigs hold a special place in many a cruising sailor’s heart. They are two masted rigs with a main mast and a (smaller) mizzenmast – they carry a jib just like a sloop.

The Clove Hitch. Another useful knot from our ‪#‎KnotsMadeEasy‬ video series. Do you have a good example of where & when to this knot while sailing?

Flotillas are a great way to explore new cruising grounds, and meet new sailors. You can enjoy the freedom of skippering your own boat but have comfort in knowing that a Flotilla Leader is on hand to help with navigation, local weather, and to ensure you get the most out of your sailing vacation!

Find out more about Flotillas and hear the stories from a flotilla in Mallorca in the Mediterranean last month...
