Looks like mostly lighter winds today. We will do our best.
Practice 1: light air weight trim: low and slow (gentle). Consider slight heel to help boat balance
Practice 2:: Always be mindful of over-trimming
- Normal warm ups, maybe a “survivor” wind sprint
- Downwind, 3 whistles = a “Gybe-Round“, in which you will approximate a gybe-then-immediate mark rounding, heading upwind. Next 3 whistles = double-tack then round a weather mark and go downwind again. Key is sail trim and skipper being able to sheet in quick enough on the Gybe-Round while still steering well, along with proper boat control. This one is often a place where mistakes are made. Upwind you need to work on keeping some momentum through the second tack then AGGRESSIVELY use body controls and sail trim to turn boat downwind, minimizing rudder drag.
