SPINNAKER & SPEED

Spinnaker & Speed 422 is all about making a sailboat go as fast as possible on or off the race course. In addition to boat handling, Chicago Sailing’s instructional staff will coach you in many different areas of sailing. Sail shape, rig adjustments and boat balance will lead you to maximum speed on the water. Then it is on to symmetrical spinnakers, where you will master every aspect of the largest and most powerful sail on a yacht. This includes rigging, setting, jibing, and dousing. All training is on the water in a controlled and hands-on environment. This course is perfect for sailors looking to become crew members on competitive boats.
