I'm starting to get more and more seriously into racing my sunfish at local regattas and am starting to discover that what is holding me back is no longer my boat speed or ability to play the shifts but more my boat to boat tactics, especially downwind. I understand the basic right of way rules and how to use them to your advantage, the basics of how to use your wind shadow against people behind you (or ahead of you on the run, how to use the wind shifts upwind, and to head up anyone trying to get inside of you on the run until the 3 boat length circle, but past that I have a lot to learn and often lose a lot of ground on the way downwind, and evidently things that work on other boats don't always work in sunfish. What are your favorite strategies for defending and trying to catch up downwind? Upwind? How to know which jibe is favored? How much windward heel? Any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated, I love being on the water and being competitive. Thanks everyone!
