This course aims at teaching you how to fly a spinnaker in a good wind. In too much wind you can blow the sail out, or even charging down wind you can pitchpole. This course will show you the techniques to avoid ending up embarrassing yourself or ending up in the drink.
Practical, though you will discuss how to launch and dowse the spinnaker on the dock as well.
You can take the Spinnakers course anywhere that has RYA accreditation and offers such a course.
You should have an RYA Dinghy Level 2 qualification or the experience to match.
Two days, though this can be combined with the RYA Performance Sailing course over four days.
You will learn how to fly a symmetric or asymmetric spinnaker. You will learn how to launch and dowse it without embarrassing yourself, as well as boat handling downwind under spinnaker. You will learn to gybe the spinnaker as well in most conditions.
