Lesson #1 – Tacking

  • Light to medium – Note how crew does not go immediately to the high side but just spins in the legs…ready to move together to high side to flatten.
  • Tactian helps with traveller when 5 person crew.
  • Note outhaul: We may have this too tight sometimes in light air
  • Notice how little rudder the driver uses…crew is turning the boat
  • Hold the roll (roll tack) in light air see how they aggressively hold the weight to leeward then flatten together
  • Crew on rail are all together and forward!
