Practice Wednesday 9-27

Boat handling today, with some downwind positioning drills, and a few practice starts.
I will be late today. PLEASE RIG AND GO OUT IMMEDIATELY. Do not hang out waiting for me.

-We all need to roll later, harder, and have more consistent tacks in varying conditions. Will focus today on crew technique.
-downwind gybes need to be more aggressive, which will produce better outcome results (out of the gybe)
– Steer with your sails (trim main/backwind jib)
– Keep the boat flat during the turn before the roll
– Roll later (after the jib starts to turn the boat)
– Roll at the same time
– Keep the jib full the entire time
– Ease the sails during the peak of the tack
– Trim the main in again as you flatten
– Straighten the rudder before you flatten

– Steer by healing the boat to leeward before the tack
– Roll too early
– Have the skipper and crew roll at different times
– Let the jib luff at all
– Keep the sails (especially the main) trimmed in while you flatten.
– Flatten with the rudder at an angle
