ASA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
"Sailing is for everyone. There should be no barriers to participation by anyone - period. The young, the old, the disabled, and the athletic all can find ways to enjoy this wonderful activity. American Sailing welcomes anyone interested in sailing regardless of their race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion. Come, and take sailing lessons from an ASA-certified instructor at an ASA affiliate facility based on our world-renowned educational system. Come, join our association of sailors who share a passion for the sport. Come, have fun sailing. The ASA recognizes the rights of all individuals to mutual respect and acceptance of others without biases based on differences of any kind and we promote these values throughout our organization and community."
