Learn to fly downwind! We have four catamarans and a skiff that are equipped with asymmetrical spinnakers; the objective of this course is to develop the basic skills that can be used on either monohulls or cats.
We will be learning on the Nacra 580, as it provides a stable, forgiving platform and will accommodate two sailors and an instructor.
To take this course, you must have CANSail 3, CYA Bronze or equivalent experience, and at least 20 hours as skipper on a catamaran. Attendance at a cat rigging clinic (to learn to rig the spinnaker) would also be helpful. In addition, you should refresh your knowledge by reviewing the instructional videos for Catamaran Rigging Complete and Catamaran Capsize on our website found here Sailing Documents and Links
This course consists of one three-hour session led by a Cansail-certified instructor from MacSailing. If conditions are suitable, plan to keep sailing after the lesson in order to practice what you have learned.
