      Hello All!

      It’s time for an exciting a-symmetrical spinnaker clinic to help make your boat go more efficiently.

      A-sym are a great sail to have and use, allowing for hotter apparent wind angles than a symmetrical, with (often) a much simpler set up.

      Thank you to Jim Calnon, of Pathefinder fame, for offering to teach this clinic. There are some simple tricks to make an A-sym fly. Jim will cover set up, use, jibes and douses, plus other useful information about this sail. A-syms are great sails to know (and love) for both racing and cruising modes.

      Please join us from 10 to noon on Saturday, Oct. 22. Would you be so kind as to let me know if you will be attending, so that proper preparations can be made?

      Thanks!

      Good evening!

      Just a quick reminder for the upcoming clinic. If you plan on coming, and have not let me know, please do let me know. If you don’t have plans to come, there is still time to change your mind, come and learn about a useful sail for both cruising and racing.
