Gennaker Course

Sailbox and its training partners at the Lake Thun sailing school and the Veleta sailing school offer gennaker courses. The latter last 2 or 3 days.


The course addresses the following topics:
Learn about and deepen your knowledge on the manoeuvers of sailing with the gennaker on the mOcean, Sailbox’s Daysailor. During the course, you will learn how to set, take in, jibe and sail with the gennaker under the expert guidance of regatta sailors.


We propose our courses on windy Lake Thun, in front of the well-known mountain tops Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, in the strong wind area of Lake Uri, on the picturesque Ägerisee and in windy Engadin.

We have offers depending on your current knowledge. The one-day classes are addressed to practiced spinnaker sailors, who already have some experience with the gennaker.

During the two-day course, you will gain solid knowledge in the handling of the gennaker, and will have an opportunity to put your knowledge to use in strong wind conditions during the three-day courses.
