Practice Monday 4-12-2021

Practice 1: 420 boat control. Focus on fore-aft weight trim recognizing important differences between the Z and C 420’s. Simple wing-on to wing-on gybing downwind. Roll sharply but crew must counterbalance on new gybe. Watch this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BnpM579DDnY/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=rh7djrskvh4g
