Start sheeting in around 15, keep sheeting in until 10. By 10-7, you should be at full race speed. at 5-4, I heel the boat...

    Heel to leeward when starting a roll tack?

    In light air, it's MUCH faster. It gets you some extra speed because you heeling the boat in 2 directions rather than one, you use less rudder, and you can get roll the boat to leeward more when you tack. In super light air, I kind of hover my hand over the tiller, and dont move it at all. I...

    Black Block and Blue Blocks What's the difference

    Hm. I broke the sister hook of the traveler block, and got a new one, and it's grey. I have one grey and one blue. I've sailed several major events and never heard anything about it.

    Sailing downwind!

    Very false. Think about it. When you're going downwind, You want to create a pocket for the air to come in, and stay in. When you have the ouhaul pulled all the way in, the airs just flowing off the side. This is the reason you should let off everything DW, and tighten everything up in heavy air.
