Dear Sailors,
For those of you participating in the Shipwrights’ regatta, let’s hear what you learned from our sessions this winter!
Did you repack the spinnaker?
Did you hoist the spinnaker on the way out to the racing course? First beer already!!!!!
Did you practice jibing a few times?
Did you go up wind and check you jib leads.
Did you check the wind direction on either tack ?
Was there any osscilations any pattern to the shifts?
Did you test your speed with any of your other competitors going upwind or checked with them to determine which side was favored.
Did you check the starting line bias?
Did any one circle counter clockwise before the start?
Had a few beers, told a few stories and had lots of fun I gather.
See you on Monday at 6 pm NWMC.
Guest speaker Vince Townrow from Ullman Sails well talk about Sailtrim, sailshape and how to make you go faster!
Cheers!!!
Stig
