RIGGING / RACING / SPINNAKER / TRAILERING
Midwest Sailing’s Level 2 course introduces one of the most popular forms of sailing: Daysailing. Level 2, taught in the Flying Scot, which is a roomy, stable, forgiving boat that is both family and student friendly making it ideal for teaching in the “Hands-on” approach to learning.
The course builds on the skills & equipment learned in the level one by introducing additional rigging (outhaul/vang), equipment (centerboard/keel), and a sail (jib), staples in daysailer designs.
Students are challenged with the increased maneuverability of the mono-hull design relative to the catamaran, particularly in fresher breezes.
Upon completion of your sailing lessons, Four hours of practice are also included in the package, allowing time to refine skills and prepare for the next level in the development program:
