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.

"My eCoach sets the standard for online teacher communities. In addition to having tools and tutorials to help teachers create web-based, standards aligned-lessons and activities, there are forum's surveys and libraries.

Being able to quickly embed content such as videos in a lesson is extremely helpful. Teachers don't have a lot of time so having all of these high quality tools integrated in one place is the way to go."
