A racing-oriented course that covers sail trim, and asymmetric spinnaker handling, and crew organization for sailors with solid helm and sail trim skills.  We work on mark roundings, speed control, steering techniques, and crew communication.  This course is perfect for skippers as well as crew looking to improve their mechanics and race course form.

Who should take this class?

Anyone interested in learning how to race or race better should consider taking this course.  We suggest that incoming students have a US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification or have sailing experience that is commensurate with the Basic Keelboat Standard.

Prerequisite?

None, but we recommend anyone considering this course should have completed a J World Basic Keelboat course or have sailing experience that is commensurate with the Basic Keelboat Standard.

What will I learn?

Spinnaker & Race Boat Handling teaches any sailor how to handle asymmetrical on the J 70 to improve their enjoyment of downwind sailing.  Cruising sailors and racing sailors alike should take this course because we show you how to properly rig, set, trim and douse spinnakers on any boat. If you are interested in training your crew on your boat, contact us about private onboard instruction.

Certification?

Students will receive a J World Annapolis certificate of completion.

How will I spend my time?

This two day class runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday of every weekend and Monday and Tuesday of most weeks.  Monday we offer students a chance to get to know each other through “social Monday” an after sailing happy hour.  From the beginning of May through the end of August, students are encouraged to join us on Thursday nights for our weekly Thursday Night Racing.

How do I register?

The course is offered on select dates this winter at Davis Island Yacht Club.  Call or email us to register now!

What should I bring?

Comfortable weather appropriate clothing, athletic shoes, and plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.  Lunch can be ordered from us or bring your own!  If you need anything else, give us a call and we can help.
