American Sailing Association


The American Sailing Association (ASA), the largest association of sailing schools in the United States, is proud to present the official iPhone application for the sailing lifestyle, designed to suit sailing novices and old salts alike. This feature-rich app has four major functional tabs: Position, Log Book, Reference and Online resources.

All sailors will love the position function, which instantly displays position, speed and bearing, and can email not only your precise position, but also a link to a map displaying it to anyone instantly.

The Log Book allows users to record the details of a voyage in as much or as little detail as desired for later reference—great for building a sailing resume or to preserve the details of a memorable sail.

The Reference tab contains information useful for both beginners and experienced sailors. The leading Reference feature is a set of 13 two-minute, high-quality videos produced by ASA demonstrating key sailing skills such as tying spring lines, adjusting sail trim and docking. Other features include illustrations of basic sailing knots, signal flags, navigation lights, buoys, glossary of over 250 sailing terms and an ASA Standards summary.

The Online section provides instant web access to an extensive set of weather resources and ASA Twitter and Facebook pages. Links to the ASA website are included to easily access its Store and lists of ASA Schools, Charter companies, Sailing Clubs and Flotilla adventures.

Great idea but... un-installing until it's fixed I already know the ASA online site, and really love the idea of this app, but as someone else mentioned; the app does NOT work well on smaller android phones, which is a big disappointment. Coordinates appear to work well, but there is no way to zoom in or out while trying to look up anything else. Not everyone wants a giant screen! Please, please fix this. Phone: Motorola DROID. Thanks

Useful app crippled by inability to export log I'd give this four stars, but they didn't bother to include a way to export your log, so there's no way to collect all of your log entries in one external file or get them off of your device.

ASA app is great but.,,, ASA app doesn't work for my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 but some features work OK. Latitude and longitude don't show minutes but fraction of a hour.
