American Sailing joins rental marketplace

Published On: May 1, 2014Categories: Industry News

The American Sailing Association (ASA), the leading authority on commercial sailing schools in the United States, recently launched an exclusive partnership with Boatbound, the nation’s fastest growing peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace in the United States, to introduce more people to the sport of sailing via ASA schools, training and certification programs. Boatbound members will receive access to ASA’s extensive library of tutorials, educational and destination-focused content, as well as discounts on ASA sailing certification courses. Once a sailor completes a certification course, he or she will have the ability to add the ASA credentials to their boater profile on Boatbound. This enhancement will give boat owners confidence in the qualifications of future renters. Boatbound and the ASA will continue to work through various social-media and policy-level channels to promote quality sailing education and certification.
