« back to classes page
Spinnakers are used by both racers and cruisers to gain extra speed when sailing downwind and while often perceived as intimidating this class will show you how easy and fun flying a spinnaker can be.  You will learn how to set up the boat, rig the spinnaker pole, and how to set, trim, gybe and drop a symmetrical spinnaker.  At the end of the class you will know how to fly the spinnaker safely in moderate conditions.

Class size:            Min 3 - Max 9
