Sailing downwind is easy. Optimizing downwind performance is tricky. The downwind sail trim courses cover both symmetric and asymmetric spinnakers and show how the coordinated efforts of the full team provide subtle but critical improvements in downwind performance.
You'll learn how to control and optimize spinnaker shape with refinements that take you beyond the basics. You'll also learn how to coordinate trim, helm, and crew weight to sail faster, deeper, and with more control.
We also cover differences in design and trim technique that distinguish symmetric and asymmetric trim. Plus we cover non-spinnaker trim for those who like to sail under Jib and Main only.
