Practice Friday 2/24/2023



Practice :          hold your lane with your weight trim

  • Practice 1: Work today on holding your lane with better weight trim. Never heel in a puff; balance the boat with weight so that it is tracking as best as possible. Downwind, balance, keep weight low, don’t over-use weight trim
  • If windy, work on hiking to depower: fore/aft body movement
  • doing the rabbit start well will be essential to be able to hold your lane
  • Downwind, be agile/active but not too clunky. sail in narrow lanes but don’t put yourself in an obvious foul position (that happened yesterday a few times)
  • Drills: Rabbit Starts and “double-mark DW drill”
