Dinghy Sailing

Dinghy Sailing is a very skilled sport that requires mastery of the following five essential Areas:

  • Sails; essential for the forward movement of the boat.
  • Underwater hydrofoils; creating a lift in the water, making it cut through water.
  • Trim; the angle the boat has in water.
  • Balance of the boat; adjusted by moving body weight around.
  • Route; influenced by water current, tides, weather patterns, wave conditions and wind speeds.

Dinghy Sailing can be a competitive sport. Races generally have a different starting and finishing point and require participants to navigate past and around marks.

Common Injuries

Injuries from rigging are common, as well as high speed impact injuries. Make sure to be vigilant in the water to avoid obstacles such as rocks, other vessels and swimmers. Be sure to wear sunscreen with a high SPF and keep hydrated to avoid sunburn and sunstroke. Long periods out on the water may keep you cool and make you mistakenly think you are not being affected by the sunlight. Always wear a life vest as this will keep you afloat in the water even in the event of serious injury or loss of consciousness.

As you are working with a boat, the movement of which is affected by wind, weather and wave conditions, there are a number of potential injuries and conditions that may be sustained.

Important Information

You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as life jackets etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Dinghy Sailing for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
