Strategy and Tactic

Philipp and Julian Autenrieth: "The best tactic and strategy decide the outcome, while the boat and the conditions are more or less the same for everyone.  Whoever can make the best out of these conditions, wins."

Alvaro: "Aqui está uma boa ferramenta para quem quer melhorar os aspectos tácticos! Experimentem!"
(Translated by Bing) "Here is a good tool for everyone who wants to improve tactical aspects! Try it!"

Tactical Sailing met Alvaro and his Seth Sailing Team Nuno Barreto, Luis Brito and Gil Conde in the Club of VSaW at Lake Wannsee. It was with pleasure that we gave a presentation of the Coach's Toolbox and the Tactical Sailing Game. Nuno was keen to try the game 8x8 turbulent wind and said:" ... seems [like] a great tool." The Seth Sailing Team took home a copy of the Tactical Sailing Program and will present it to their friends in Portugal, especially to 470er sailor and coaches for Opti. Our discussions about oscillating and shifting winds were amazing, because these were the exact kind of very difficult conditions they met on Lake Wannsee during the BMW Match Races. See
