Welcome to CSA
Americas premier sailing school teaching
United States Coast Guard approved
The basic teaching techniques used at CSA were developed by our Director, Paul J. Miller who was graduated from the United States Naval Academy Annapolis in the top ten percent, coached the sailing team, teaches Astrophysics at UCLA and wrote his thesis on the techniques of teaching sailing for a masters degree .
CSA courses utilize classroom, videos, workbooks, models, and (of course) on the water instruction. CSA recognizes that the best way to learn is by experience, so 80% of your time is spent on the water.
CSA teaches accredited sailing and navigation programs through many universities and colleges, including UCLA and Pepperdine University.
CSA courses prepare you to become licensed with The United States Coast Guard and/or accredited with the American Sailing Association (ASA). Paul Miller teaches for schools across our Nation as well as Canada.
