Previously known as Performance 1, OCSC's Small Boat Symmetrical Spinnaker course is a comprehensive introduction to both spinnaker sailing as well as upwind boat handling. As opposed to the race course where you specialize in only one skill, this course will rotate you through the four positions: helm, pole-guy, sheeter, and foredeck. This way, you will truly have a complete understanding of all that is needed in order to "fly the chute".
There is very little more exciting than spinnaker sailing on San Francisco Bay, especially downwind to Berkeley at the end of the day. It is the highlight of any day sail. Spinnaker 101A gives you the skills you'll need to "fly the chute" safely in moderate conditions.
Successful completion prepares you to:
8am–4pm (Apr–Oct), 9am–5pm (Nov–Mar)

Whether you are a performance sailor, or just enjoy sailing, the asymmetrical spinnaker is fast and easy-to-use.
