Practice 5-11-2021

Practice 1: Work on better downwind boat control and timing with your partner on tacks and gybes.

Practice 2: Make SURE you under-trim the jibs out of a tack, and then sheet in smoothly as the boat accelerates. If you can’t point, often your jib trim is too tight and/or your mainsail trim isn’t tight enough.
Practice 3: Downwind, work very hard to get free and in a place where you can gybe and tack. Your tactical considerations for the leeward gate or finish start early, since when going downwind, you are normally headed right for the target.

Drills:

  • normal warm ups, try to do some stops/starts along with the usual
  • more practice starts, with one leg up.
  • Focus: How to finish downwind well.
