Cruising Catamaran Spinnaker Clinic

Spinnakers are gorgeous, powerful, and to many sailors, a bit vexing. How to control all that free-floating power with the limited sail control lines is the essence of sailing’s life-long learning curve, and too often these sails stay in their bags because sailors find the prospect just a tad too daunting. WCM is offering you a way to beat this paradigm, and make the most of that big, beautiful sail, whether aboard a catamaran, or your monohull (the biggest difference being no pole on a cat). Come along for a fun and fascinating afternoon with the pretty sail, and walk away with new skills and confidence.
