On successful completion of this course you will understand how to sail a dinghy rigged with an asymmetric and/or symmetric spinnaker.

At PDSSA we take this course in a variety of small dinghies. You will be sailing in a two man boat with another sailor and an instructor close to you in a safety boat. An instructor will generally only get onboard with you to demonstrate a technique.

It is recommended that all participants consolidate their skills by practicing between courses.


  • 16 Hours split over two consecutive days or run over a series of shorter sessions.
