22 - 24 June : Spinnaker Handling Course with Peter Hopps

Spinnaker Handling Course

The Spinnaker is a fantastic sail – good fun and a real speed-enhancer; but it's sometimes difficult to control and a lot of people are reluctant to use it. This course de-mystifies the whole thing and gives everyone a chance to do all the different jobs involved in working the spinnaker. The topics covered include:

  • What is a spinnaker and when to use it
  • Different types of spinnaker
  • Use of sheets and guys
  • Use of spinnaker pole – different types
  • Preparation and hoisting
  • Gybing – dip pole and end-for-end (if possible)
  • Dropping – inc different options
  • Packing
  • Peeling
