M24 via “You Tube”: Light air Gybing

Lesson #2 : Light air gybing.
Trevor’s comments:

  • Note the crew moving to the windward side to initiate the gybe
  • Floater person helps pull spin around – note final pull on leech is straight down.
  • Spinnaker comes through before main (early on the spin)
  • Crew weight stays on leeward (new gybe) – Do not flatten until spinnaker is full and driving…We have been too anxious to flatten too early in the past!
