RYA Dinghy Sailing with Spinnakers
We run our sailing with spinnakers courses between April and October. This course introduces utilising the 3rd sail on the boat. This course is open to everyone aged 16+, with plenty of opportunities fly a spinnaker. We will be working towards RYA Dinghy Sailing with Spinnakers of the adult sailing scheme, which will allow you to discover more exhilarating sailing.
This course is ideal for people who have completed their RYA Level 3 or had their skills assessed by a club instructor.
The course will be taught with a ratio of 6 students to 1 instructor in single handed boats and covers the following:
Level 2 - Everything you need to know to sail a boat confidently with conventional or asymmetric spinnakers. Learn how to rig the boat, hoist, gybe and drop/recover one type of spinnaker, either conventional or asymmetric. Gain the knowledge and understanding to sail the best possible course downwind.
None (although under 16s may prefer to learn through the Youth Sailing Scheme)
