Whitecaps Sailing, an ASA-certified sailing school of Med Sailing Adventures, offers classes on Charlotte Harbor in Punta Gorda, Florida, from December through May and in various places in the Mediterranean, such as Croatia, Spain, Turkey and Greece during the summer months, May through September.

Classes are taught on the West Coast of Florida on a Belgian made ETAP32s sailboat. This beautiful yacht has brand new sails, bimini, dodger and sail drive seals. She has been certified as an unsinkable boat and is an ideal learning platform.

We can also certify you on your own yacht.

Your adventure starts here!

After completion of a 7 day live-aboard class in one of these amazing destinations, you will obtain ASA 101, 103 & 104 certification. Also available is the 114 (catamaran) endorsement. Our yachts have double cabins with plenty of space for those traveling with their spouses.

Already a sailor but no certifications?

If you have already a lot of sailing experience but no certifications, you can challenge the ASA tests or, if you still need the training, we can teach you in Florida, or in the Mediterranean. These certifications will allow you to bareboat charter anywhere in the world.
