RYA Sailing with Spinnakers
Re: Coronavirus (covid-19) temporary update
Due to the current Bermuda Government, social distancing restrictions, this make sailing with spinnakers with a mixture of people not possible at this current time.
We can still run household or persons in the same social bubble to do their sailing with spinnakers course.
This must be one of the most exciting RYA courses as you get to use the spinnaker. The Sailing with spinnakers course will teach you the knowledge and understanding of using a symmetric spinnaker. It covers the hoisting and dropping of the symmetric spinnaker, gybing, capsize and inversion recovery techniques. You will investigate what happens when traveling at speed and you start to generate “apparent wind” and the effect, this has on the sails. The course will spend a lot of time flying the spinnaker to experience the thrill of sailing downwind!
Please Note: There needs to be a minimum of 2 participants, which is required to make this course guaranteed to run.
If your preferred date is not available, we can arrange a date and time to your liking but we do require a minimum of 2 participants. Please do get in touch with the office at Hello@usailbda.com.

“Great sailing center in a beautiful location and with amazing instructors and friendly team, I highly recommend!”
“5 star to U Sail Bermuda. Great place to learn to sail. I’ve received my RYA Dinghy Level 2 certificate. Affordable rates for the weekend Learn to Sail for both Level 1 and Level 2. I am a pure beginner, so I like how they are in Harrington Sound with minimal boat traffic and it’s really just me trying to figure out where the wind is. They are all about safety so- someone is overlooking the water watching with a safety boat ready to go if required when you do boat hire (like I did after I’ve received my Level 2). Looking forward to hiring paddleboards and doing some windsurfing lessons with them. Overall, always received great service. All the instructors are very personable- Naphali, Donavin, Jonny and Thomas- Thank you for letting me achieve one of my bucket list.”
"Our group of 6 ladies had a fabulous time on an introductory course. Just great fun, learned lots but also had lots of giggles. The U Sail team were fabulous. I’m hooked!"
“Had 2 fabulous mornings of WASZP foiling lessons with Aaron, learned a ton and had a fabulous time. I can't say enough great things about U Sail Bermuda, wonderful staff, great service, beautiful location on Harrington Sound, and the boats are in top condition with plenty of spares if things break. I'll be definitely be booking more sessions the next time we're in Bermuda.”
“Great session learning to windsurf so much fun!!! Defo coming back for more!! Great instructor & team!!”
“This is such a fun way to get on the water and sail, just for fun! We had three generations out on the water together, laughing the whole time. Excellent team, and a surprisingly affordable price.”
