This one-day clinic will introduce you to various heavy weather sailing equipment, preparation, and techniques. Taught onboard our Spencer 44, Coho II, your instructor will cover topics like personal safety equipment, line handling techniques in high winds, setting up storm sails and running rigging, and steering in large following seas. The class will be taught on the bay and will give you the hands-on training to be prepared for coastal trips and ocean passages.
The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
