Spinnaker Know-How

Want to Learn to Fly a Spinnaker?

Hey fellow sailors,

I hope everyone is doing well. If you’re like me, you look for any opportunity to be outside. I’m going to be at the BLYC Eastport docks Saturday (5/9/2020). A number of you have expressed interest in knowing how to fly a spinnaker (kite). If you’re interested and available for a hands-on (at the docks) demo, come by at 1:00 Saturday and I’ll cover:

  • Setting up the boat for a spinnaker 
  • How to do an end-for-end gybe in six steps
  • How to pack a symmetrical spinnaker

We will be practicing social distancing so please bring your face mask.
