Tactical Tips and Suggestions

The 1x1 of the wind
1. The 1x1 wind tends to veer to the right. You should sail on the right side in order to have better chances to get to the windward mark first. See the exercise “wind shifts” from David Dellenbaugh: Sail towards the wind shifts!
2. Use the Burgee-Windex and your reading of the angle of change by Tacking the boat to observe the wind more efficiently and to complete the correct tacking maneuver.
