Tactical Tips

The standard program includes a learning module with more than 40 tips to sail "Against the Wind" or "Boat Against Boat". The most popular tactical tips from David Dellenbaugh are presented as video-clips, e.g. the advantage of sailing the long tack first, or downwind and upwind tactics. Using tactics while sailing a race means knowing how to use the particular features of lay lines, the rules of the zones, overlapping, and the inside position of buoys on any course - from the Olympic trapeze to up and down. We use optimal angles to tack or to jibe and give tips on how to maneuver if you get a header, lift, or persistent shift.
The program offers also simulated scenes to show the most important situations, when boats are meeting or crossing their way. When sailing against other boats, you have to know the "ISAF Right of Way Rules". Beginners can learn the basic rules in case you have "right of way" or if you have to "keep clear of other boats".

David Dellenbaugh was the tactician and helmsman of the America-3 during the successful defense of the America’s Cup in 1992, as well as is a multiple international and U.S. Champion. XXX David Dellenbaugh is the publisher, editor, and author of XXX SPEED&Smarts. For many years he has written tips for successful regatta sailing.
