Post all your favorite tricks/techniques for sailing fast downwind My two favs When sailing in slightly heavy air, pull up your centerboard a little bit, and then start pumpin A LITTLE, not MUCH. Your boat will rock, which is fast. If anybody protests you for rocking, just say that you lost control of your boat. You can't do this a lot, but only a few times can still be quite good. Another has to be "s" gybing. it RULES.
