Life Changing Experience!

I took Captain Brad's ASA 101 and 103 courses. It was my first time sailing a big boat, and I was nervous, but Brad's demeanor put me at ease.As a retired teacher, I can say with confidence what good teaching looks like. Brad is a great teacher because of his patience, positivity, organization, and dedication. He really cares about his students, and he has the experience to go with it! I have plans to return next year and take ASA 104. I would 100% recommend Southernmost Sailing School to my friends and family!

Great experience!

Free My friend and I just took ASA 101 and 103 from Captain Brad and we had a great experience! He was incredibly patient, nice, and knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable the entire time and our stay on the boat was fantastic. We both plan to take further classes through him in the future!

My mom and I took the ASA 101 and 103 course with Captain Brad at the southernmost sailing school over 4 days. Truly an amazing and unforgettable experience. Brad is a great teacher; extremely knowledgeable, patient, and passionate about sailing. I can guarantee you will leave this school with confidence to sail on your own and a love for sailing yourself. Not to mention, the location rocks. We can’t wait to take more classes from Captain Brad. Thank you southernmost sailing school! Book yours now, you won’t regret it!

Awesome Course

This is not your relaxing, beer drinking course that you would think it would be. We took ASA 101 and 103 over 4 days. It required a lot of studying and sailing. We learned a lot and got pretty comfortable with the boat. Captain Brad is a standup guy who is easy to talk to. I am definitely glad that I took the course through him. I am looking forward to taking 104 with him in the future. If you want to learn to sail, this is your course. Thanks again Captain Brad!

ASA 101, 103 and 104

Fantastic sailing and learning experience with Southernmost Sailing School aboard SV Obsession!

Excellent course from a very experienced and fun captain

Captain Lockwood is a great skipper. We took ASA 101 and ASA 103 with the intention of getting some hours logged to eventually bareboat our own monohaul or sailing cat around the Caribbean.

All of the information from Captain Brad was high yield. His average score on the 100 question written test is 93% and he has instructed over 700 students!

The sailboat was in great working order and we were thrilled to have time to anchor and snorkel at a shipwreck.

An added bonus Captain Lockwood will soon be installing an electric motor and selling the 25 hp diesel engine.

Captain Lockwood is especially skilled at teaching how to plot a course with charts and compass. His old school method gives us solace when the GPS is unable to capture a signal due to clouds or malfunction.

I felt very confident navigating a full size sailboat after performing his quick stop/ man overboard drill several times. The key west harbor is busy with jet skis, multiple boats out at anchor, and day trip traffic however I was sure of my ability to navigate, tack, and jibe- the instruction area is actually a perfect harbor with crystal clear water.

I would highly recommend this instructor.

Great Learning & Sailing Adventure

My grown daughter and I sailed with Captain Brad for 2 1/2 days celebrating our milestone birthdays. My daughter got her ASA 101 Certification and I had a great time sailing along. Brad went above and beyond and even fixed us an excellent breakfast and dinner. My daughter learned way more than a typical 101 class. We had a great time. Brad is friendly, knowledgable, professional and lots of fun!

Great Trip!

Thanks to Capt Brad for a great time and learning experience during our ASA104 course. He was extremely informative and patient as we learned the ropes of the coursework and skills. We had a great trip on the Catalina 30 and a wonderful dinner of fish, red beans and rice. What a memorable and educational trip. Thanks for all of your help Capt Brad in getting us one step closer to our dreams!

Highly Recommend!

We had an outstanding experience taking the ASA 103 Class with Captain Brad. You will not find a more knowledge, experienced, or safe instructor. We are looking forward to taking the ASA 104 with him.

ASA 101,103 and105

My husband and I signed up for Captain Brad's ASA course after starting to crew on a racing team in Cleveland Ohio. Wow, what a terrific experience. We were out on the water practicing skills everyday and studying at night. From the reservations to the final goodbye I could not have asked for a better week. Since we are so new to sailing I don't think we'll be Captaining vessel soon but our new knowledge of sailing has given us a taste of the lifestyle and craft. Captain Mike was our instructor. He was terrific, informative, fun and didn't let us land lubbers get away easy!! So thankful for the experience.

Great experience

My wife and I just completed our ASA 101 with Captain Brad and we couldn't be happier . He was very patient and explained everything we needed to know. We are definitely considering coming back when we are ready to continue our ASA training

ASA 104 in Key West

Brad let us use the knowledge we brought to his course and built on our experience to help us build confidence in our next adventure, chartering a boat on our own!

Thanks again for the lovely meal and great conversations.

Terrific Sailing Lessons and Experience

Planned a Key West vacation and wanted to learn the basics of sailing. Capt. Brad suggested the ASA 101 two day course and it was exactly what I needed. He sent a book in advance to review the instructional material along with a rope to practice knots. Upon arrival in Key West we spent two days on the boat learning the skills and practicing. Its not work at all but an enjoyable experience being on a great boat with a great instructor enjoying the sun, ocean and a strong breeze! A terrific experience learning the basics and fully covering all the information in the 101 class. Capt. Brad is an excellent instructor and sailor. I cant imagine any better experience or location to learn how to sail!

Amazing school

Just had the opportunity to spend 3 days with Captain Mike and get certified 101 and 103. Fantastic experience - Mike is super friendly and relaxed, and at the same time very professional and diligent in the learning program. He was able to accommodate some agenda constraints on my side, and made my life very easy with his flexibility. We used different boats for 101 and 103, which was very nice as well. Key West is awesome of course. I will for sure come back for 104!
