Tips for Sailing Upwind – Geometry and Wind Shifts

In this podcast the presenter reviews laylines, ladder rungs, and the danger of getting too close to the edge of the course.   Additionally, it shows just how much a lead can change when there is a big wind shift, and it talks about the danger of trying to build “leverage” against the fleet.

 

This is one of over thirty racing video podcasts from Raceqs.com.  In this and other podcasts you will see graphical representations of actual races which were recorded using Raceq’s free iPhone or Android apps.  Several racers in the PTSA fleet have been using this app to record and review races held here on Port Townsend Bay.
