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.

What's New in Version 2.1
Added iPad support
Half assed assembly of junk
This program (although it takes up 196mb) has pictures of how to tie 6 simple knots and the pictures of the signal flags. It's compass indicated I am moving at 2 knots sitting at my office desk. It gives you sailing info for Utah but not my state of Rhode Island, the ocean state, home of 5 of the top fifteen sailing programs in the country and the home of the Americas Cup for 100 years. Are you freaking kidding me?!!! What an utter waste of space....
This is a nicely done app. Please update for iPhone 5!!!
