Windsurfing Jibe & Fast Tack
Thursday, Aug 11, 2022 (2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)
Prerequisite: WINDSURFING LIGHT
Earned from class: New maneuvers/techniques/abilities
The next step after earning a WINDSURFING LIGHT rating. This class should be taken by EVERY club member with a WINDSURFING LIGHT rating. Students will progress on to more advanced and important maneuvers, as well as more advanced technique in general. This class serves not only as light wind instruction, but also as preparation for high wind sailing. Students will learn how to always have a full sail when on the water, use the mast-foot as a significant source of pressure, and control sail and board through foot steering and body placement. Also taught are fast tacks (tacks for windy/wavy conditions that bypass neutral position completely) and basic lightwind jibes. Students will sail on Hi-Fly Mambos or BIC Melodies.
This lesson meets by the Boathouse.
