We will see the basic maneuvers of this sail, using a crew that allows us to carry a pole as an aid to the bow. Our objective will be to maneuver with enough speed and precision to allow us to use the spi in normal conditions, having the security of being able to control it in any change.


At the same time we will be seeing spinnaker trimming techniques that will be very advantageous to us to get its maximum performance and be competitive in regatta, which we will achieve by combining good spi management with speed and precision in the maneuver.


Because let's not forget, the performance of this wing depends on the skill of the entire crew.

Plan
We arrive on Friday afternoon, we will have dinner on board and sleep on the boat as well.
On Saturday we will start the course heading towards where the wind favors us to maneuver the spi. On this first day we will rehearse the lifting, jibing and lowering maneuvers, beginning the study of the trim of the sail and its joint handling with the wheel.
We will eat on board and at the end of the afternoon we will return to the nearest port where we will sleep on board, to start on Sunday a day dedicated only to the trims of spi with major.
We will return in the afternoon to go back to our city of origin.

The boat
Boat that combines comfort with good speed benefits for its length. Like all First, it defends its rating well for its hull design, a good size stick that supports a large sail area compensated by a daggerboard that lowers its draft to 2.35 m, and symmetrical spi. Although it is not comparable to a Swan type racer, its interior comfort makes up for it, offering good habitability. It plays a more than worthy role in regattas and offers good comfort for long stays on vacation.

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.
