The spinnaker is a must in competition and very useful in crossing for its ability to take advantage of high winds. This course is aimed at those who already have knowledge of sail trim and steering a sailboat and want to get the boat that point of excitement and speed so necessary at times.

Plan
At the beginning of the day and in pontoon we will give a brief notion about the spinnaker and its use, types that we can find and its different utilities.
We will describe and assemble the necessary maneuver for its use and, after reviewing the basic maneuvers with it, we will jump into the water.
We will sail and study the special features of your trim and the precautions to be taken with this delicate sail.
We will sail with him in different directions and we will practice maneuvers, especially the jibe, involving all the crew in its handling and rotating the different positions so that it is contemplated from any perspective.

The boat
Day cruise based on the San Juan Reservoir. It is an ideal boat for teaching due to its capacity and nobility of reactions, and for regattas in protected waters since its design, derived from the j80, makes it a fast and ventolinero boat. It is equipped with a spinaker maneuver, which gives it a good disposition for regattas.

Yacht captain and PPER with extensive experience in crossings and regattas. I enjoy sailing in almost any situation, relaxed on vacation or competitive of regattas. I do not care about the bad weather or sleep little or anywhere but I detest the problems of coexistence on board.

    Very good experience, I had not had previous contact with the sail and I have touched all the positions of the boat, including the rudder. The skipper takes a real interest in your learning, rotates all the crew, allowing you to experience all the functions. Very interesting for a first contact with sailing.

    Everything has been easy with Luis, he has always tried to guarantee that we had the right wind to navigate, and very oriented to the student being the one who takes the boat. Excellent experience
