Points of Sail                                                                                        

Sail Trim

-cannot sail closer than 45 deg. to wind

-as the boat turns down, away from the wind, the sails should be adjusted out

Starting Sequence

Layout of Race Course  

Windward-Leeward Course                                       Triangular Course


Most Important Rules

1. Starboard Tack- tack= whatever side the boom is not on; boats on starboard tack have right of way

2. Leeward- leeward=boat farthest from wind; if boats are on the same tack, the leeward boat has right of way

Please leave a comment and tell me if you thought this post was helpful, confusing, boring, useless, annoying, etc. so I’ll know what to do with future programs.

In any case, I hope this picture brings you joy:
