Beneteau America and the ASA are revealing the fruit of their collaboration: the ASA First 22. A new ASA-exclusive sail training vessel using Beneteau’s popular First 20 as its inspiration. Some of its features include an extended cockpit to give students and instructors more room, a rig designed specifically for sail training, and ergonomic and safety innovations to ensure that every sail is comfortable and safe. The research and development team at Beneteau used input from ASA instructors, schools, and leading competitive sailors to refine and adapt the design of its very successful First 20. This collaboration has produced a singularly modern sail training vessel to make learning how to sail easier, safer and more fun!
