Instructional Clinics are a great way to increase your sailing skills and knowledge in a short one session format. These clinics are a complimentary benefit to Sailing Members, but also available to non-members. If you are a sailing member, please email us to sign up for free. 


Spinnaker Clinic

Spinnakers are colorful sails often used on both racing and cruising sailboats to gain extra speed when sailing downwind. Often perceived as complicated and intimidating, during this clinic you will see just how easy and fun flying a spinnaker can be. Topics include rigging, hoisting, trimming, jibing, and dropping an asymmetrical spinnaker on our RS Quests.
