Spinnaker

By Barbara Bray
A spinnaker is a special type of sail that is designed for sailing off the wind from a reaching course to a downwind. In other words, spinnakers are used with the wind 90 to 180 degrees off the bow. The spinnaker fills with wind and balloons out in front of the boat, called flying. Spinnakers are only used at certain points of sail so raising and lowering them is a task often performed while under sail.

"It has been a real boost to have a blog that parents and students can go to and see not only the finished product, but the planning and putting everything together that the kids do. My eCoach has helped me so much by providing a space to show the process AND to share resources. (I can't keep track of my bookmarks, so if it's something I think is really good, I put it in 'Resources' on the team page. Now I can find it!) Take a bow!"
